Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has admitted to The Sun he tried to sign Manchester United star Ashley Young two years ago.
Young, who scored in England’s 2-2 draw to Montenegro Friday, signed for United for £17million this summer and is already justifying his fee. However, Redknapp remains unconcerned as Gareth Bale proved to be a revelation in the season following Redknapp’s attempted coup. He said: “Ashley Young is a good player, so exciting. I tried to sign him a couple of years ago for Tottenham and last night confirmed I was right doing so. It just so happens we have a bloke called Gareth Bale in that position now who isn’t too shabby.”
