Tottenham transfer dealings keep them in title challenge says Dowie

Tottenham had their traditional busy transfer deadline day, sending Vedran Corluka, Steven Pienaar and Sebastien Bassong out on loan to Bayer Leverkusen, Everton and Wolves respectively, and bringing in Louis Saha and Ryan Nelsen in short-term deals. Footbal pundit Iain Dowie sees the sense in Harry Redknapp’s dealings:

“Harry Redknapp likes Saha and it’s a low-risk move as he’s only there until the end of the season. Now he’s moved Pavlyuchenko on, Saha is the best like-for-like replacement for Emmanuel Adebayor.

“Harry has sent Sebastien Bassong out, and brought in a very experienced player in Nelsen. The one area he might have a problem is right-back now Vedran Corluka has left, but Nelsen’s arrival could give him the option of playing Younes Kaboul on the right.

“They’ve got a very rounded squad and I think they’re right in the shake-up. It’s not just a two-horse race.”
