Spurs lodge £2m Loach bid - Report

01 February 2010 10:43
Loach has been in excellent form for the Hornets season and is believed to have caught the eye of several of the country's top clubs - with Spurs now making a move, according to Sky Sports News.

Harry Redknapp had made Begovic his number one target but the Portsmout stopper turned down his offer after hearing of interest from Stoke, who are expected to sign the Bosnia international later on Monday.

Redknapp has also been linked with a move for Begovic's team-mate David James but only wants to sign a back-up, rather than a replacement, for first-choice Heurelho Gomes.

While conceding there is a chance of business being done at White Hart Lane, Redknapp is happy with his squad as it stands and not desperate to bring in fresh faces.

"Possibly, I wouldn't want to stand here and say no," he said on Sky Sports News, when asked if there might be signings made on deadline day.

"The chairman Daniel (Levy) I think he quite likes deadline day, I'm sure he's busy on the phone today.

"I've been looking around for a back-up goalkeeper but at the moment we're not close to doing anything.

"We thought we had the kid from Portsmouth Begovic but he decided not to come.

"I love Jamo, I think he's fantastic. I still think he's the best English goalkeeper but the situation is that he needs to play. I couldn't leave Gomes out of my team and obviously Jamo needs to play to go to the World Cup.

"He's a top goalkeeper but he needs to play to cement his place in the World Cup team."
