Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is reported to be working on his most audacious transfer coup yet, by luring unsettled Argentinian striker, Carlos Tevez away from Manchester City.
Tevez revealed in an Argentinian TV interview that he isn't happy with his lot in Cottonopolis, and that on the whole, he'd rather be plying his trade elsewhere.
Which must have been music to Harry's ears, as Tevez never indicated during his West Ham days that he was unsettled in the capital.
"I fink the boy would be happy here," Redknapp said. "We're a progressive club, with lofty ambitions, and we're minted to fuck at the moment - although don't ask me how, because it's all a bit hush hush at the moment. Ideally, I'd have Tevez forming a two pronged attack, linking up with Lionel Messi, playing off Xavi and Iniesta. If we can tempt big Dave back to the club, we can really start the ball rolling and mount a title challenge next season."
Big Dave, as Harry refers to him, is none other than former England goalkeeper David James, who was instrumental in Portsmouth's relegation campaign, under Harry Redknapp.
James said that he hasn't been contacted by Harry so far, but that he'll be waiting anxiously by the phone until at least tea time.
And the Spurs go marching on.
More as we get it.
