Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has claimed the club are on the verge of completing the loan signing of striker Eidur Gudjohnsen. The former Chelsea player had already undergone a medical at West Ham and appeared on course to join Gianfranco Zola's squad. But, according to Redknapp, the 31-year-old is set to move to White Hart Lane on loan for the rest of the season from Monaco, subject to a medical. Redknapp was quoted by the Sun as saying: "We've been talking about him for nearly two weeks and when we heard West Ham were interested we made our move. "We are not 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."
