"He's player I've always admired," said Redknapp. "He can play several positions and is a very clever footballer."

He added: "It was his decision to come to us. I rang him and left a message on his phone and he came back to me and said I want to come to Tottenham.

"He gives us lots of options. He is a top player."

The Tottenham boss also confirmed that Birmingham were in talks for Russian striker Pavlyuchenko but, added: "We're not keen to sell him. We're happy with him. Technically he's a terrific player."
