Harry Redknapp has finally opened up to the possibility of selling Croatian midfielder Luka Modric, according to ESPN. Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has remained stubborn in his stance over selling Modric, remaining confident the diminutive playmaker will remain a Spurs player, but it seems that Redknapp would rather see Modric leave now, so that Spurs have time to strengthen, than see a repeat of the Dimitar Berbatov saga from 2008. “You either sell him, go out and bring three or four players in and have a better team, probably, in all honesty, or you keep him,” said the Tottenham gaffer.

Diarra interest confirmed.
Harry Redknapp has confirmed his interest in signing Real Madrid’s powerful holding midfielder Lassana Diarra as a possible replacement for Luka Modric, reports ESPN. Whilst the ongoing striker hunt looks set to finish in the next few days with Manchester City’s Emmanuel Adebayor seemingly heading to White Hart Lane, Redknapp looks set to add Diarra to his ranks in the holding role, after having is interest in West Ham’s Scott Parker knocked back by the steep asking price. This deal could see Wilson Palacios move out of the Lane, with Stoke City reportedly interested.
Willian fancies Spurs move.
Shakhtar Donetsk’s Brazilian winger Willian is reportedly desperate to come to Premier League, with Tottenham Hotspur firmly in his sights according to ESPN. Whilst Donesk have no need to cash in on the former Corinthians wideman, interest from the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea have turned the head of the fans’ favourite, as he looks to play in what he called “one of the best leagues in the world.” The winger also said: “Having played in Ukraine for four years, I can already deal with the physical side of the game.”So perhaps a move to the Premier League would suit his aggressive style.
