Harry seeking more signings

07 Jan 2009 - 07:54:08

Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp is hoping to make further signings this month, having sealed the return of striker Jermain Defoe to the club.

Defoe heads back to White Hart Lane from Portsmouth and Redknapp hopes that the England international will not be the last new arrival in January.

He said after the Carling Cup semi-final first leg win at home to Burnley: "I would like to get another three or four decent players in. I think we need to.

"We need a certain type here - we have got an awful lot of good little players, but we need more strength and a bit more power in the team."

Meanwhile, Redknapp has denied poaching Defoe off Pompey, despite having made public statements of his intent to snap up the diminutive frontman.

He added: "He was for sale, I did not go and raid Portsmouth at all. They wanted to sell Jermain Defoe.

"I said I would not go back there and upset anyone, or try to take any players unless the club wanted to sell them and Portsmouth wanted to sell Jermain.

"It was a good deal for everyone. What a fantastic deal for Portsmouth in a year, the money they have earned out of him.

"They can have no complaints, they have sold Lassana Diarra for £20million, who I paid £5million for and there are a few more they will make fortunes on."
