Gudjohnsen set to choose Spurs

28 Jan 2010 - 09:18:56

Tottenham Hotspur have emerged as the favourites to sign the former Chelsea and Barcelona striker Eidur Gudjohnsen.

It had been thought that the Iceland international was heading to West Ham United but it now seems as though he will move to White Hart Lane on loan for the rest of the season from Monaco.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp said: "We've been talking about him for nearly two weeks and, when we heard West Ham were interested, we made our move.

"We aren't paying a penny more than West Ham were offering him. Two identical deals were on the table. In the end it was a straight choice for Eidur."

The 31-year-old had already undergone a medical at Upton Park and appeared on course to join Gianfranco Zola's squad so Spurs' late interest has annoyed the club's new co-owner David Sullivan.

He said: "We thought we had a deal and the player even had a medical. We then heard that Tottenham were trying to speak to the player. I can't say I'm happy about it but I believe in Karma and what goes around, comes around."
