Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp remains confident that he will be able to seal a deal to sign Wigan Athletic midfielder Wilson Palacios before the transfer window closes in less than two weeks' time. Spurs are holding talks with the Honduras international after agreeing a fee, believed to be in the region of £14million, with Wigan for Palacios, although Manchester City are also believed to be interested in signing the player. Redknapp told Sky Sports News: "I think we've agreed a deal and the chairman is talking to his people now to see if there's a deal to be done. "Hopefully (we can secure the deal). Apart from Palacios, there is no one else really on the horizon here." On missing out on Craig Bellamy, who has opted to move from West Ham to Manchester City, Bellamy added: "I wanted Craig, obviously. I would have loved him to come here. "I think he is good player, and a fighter. He wants to win. He has terrific ability, in my opinion. "I was keen to get him. But once Man City come in, it is very difficult to compete. They are working on another level compared to almost everybody else."
