When asked about possible transfers before tomorrow’s deadline day, Spurs manager Harry Redknapp was typically vague,
“I can’t see an awful lot happening,” Harry said.
“I will probably watch a game on Sunday but not with a real eye on anyone, although I’m not going to tell you which match.”
Those are the sort of comments we’ve come to expect and a year ago we probably would have dismissed them completely. However, as we all know, nothing happened on deadline day 2011 other than an aborted move for Charlie Adam so can we look forward to another barren day?
Reports today have linked the club with Andy Carroll and a bid of £10m that the story refers to as ‘cheeky’. That would seem unlikely for a number of reasons but the other link is with Norwich City’s Steve Morison.
The former Northampton and Stevenage man has taken to life in the Premiership reasonably well with nine goals in 23 games for the Canaries thus far. That would lead some pundits to suggest that he could be even more prolific at another club while some Spurs fans may see him as the next Grzegorz Rasiak.
Another story links the club to Brazilian under 20 captain Bruno Uvini who is a 20 year old central defender playing for Sao Paulo.
Overall, is Harry bluffing or is tomorrow going to be another quiet day at Spurs Lodge?
