Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has strongly denied making a bid for Manchester United goalkeeper Ben Foster.

One report suggested Spurs had an offer turned down by the Barclays Premier League champions for the 26-year-old England international, who has struggled for regular games at Old Trafford and has not played since November.

"I have no idea where this story has come from because we have never made an offer for Ben Foster, let alone had one rejected," said Redknapp.

"He is an England goalkeeper and I cannot see him going somewhere as a number two anyway."

Redknapp has been delighted with the form of Brazil goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes, who has kept six clean sheets in a row and has not conceded in 627 minutes.

However, the Spurs boss has made no secret of the fact he is looking to sign a back-up stopper for Gomes, and he has been linked with moves for Coventry's Keiren Westwood, Joe Lewis of Peterborough and Watford's Scott Loach.

Carlo Cudicini was competing with Gomes for the number-one jersey until a motorcycle accident effectively ended his campaign, with Ben Alnwick on the bench for the majority of games since.
