Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp has denied making a £1million bid for Chelsea goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini. The long-serving Blues back-up keeper was reported on Wednesday to have been targeted by the Spurs boss. Redknapp is unhappy with the goalkeeping situation at White Hart Lane with the erratic Heurelho Gomes his current number one. Veteran Spaniard Cesar Sanchez is poised to return to La Liga with Valencia, which leaves Redknapp with only youngster Ben Alnwick as back-up to Gomes. However, the Spurs chief has denied tabling an offer for 35-year-old Cudicini. Speaking after his side's aggregate victory over Burnley on Wednesday evening which booked their return to the Carling Cup final, Redknapp said: "I don't know anything about Cudicini." Meanwhile, Redknapp accused some of his players of 'sulking' amid reports of several new signings being in the pipeline. "One or two of them tonight looked like they had a sulk on because they think I'm going to bring one or two new players in," he claimed. "They should be fighting for their lives to stay at a great club like Tottenham. "It's a fantastic football club, great tradition and their futures are on the line for some of them. "They need to perform for me to want to keep them in the long term."
