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."
