Many of Spurs’ fringe players have been linked with a move away from the club and generally speaking, rumours about possible departures for the likes of Vedran Corluka and Steven Pienaar have been met with a clear ‘no’ from Harry Redknapp.
That hasn’t been the case with Gio Dos Santos however and after the manager is believed to have vetoed a last minute move in the summer, it now seems that he is finally prepared to let the Mexican go.
“We’ll see what happens in this window,” Redknapp said. “I think he’ll probably move if we get the right offer, but we have to get the right offer. He’s an international player and it was a real big offer last year. I’m sure the chairman would not want to let him go cheaply.”
Gio impressed on Saturday as he did in some of his Europa League outings and while we often see frustrating signs of his true potential, Harry also gave a clear indication as to why the player isn’t part of his overall plans.
“He’s got talent but has to work harder in training and get fitter,” explained Redknapp.
“When he does that he has a chance. He has had a real opportunity to play here if he’s at it, but there are lots of good players here.”
So there we have confirmation of what many of us suspected but it remains to be seen if Gio will finally end his Spurs career in this transfer window.
