Tottenham Hotspur have had a £15million bid for Newcastle striker Andy Carroll turned down according to the Metro.
Newcastle are very keen to keep hold of Carroll but has been courting attention from some of Europe's top clubs and Spurs are one of the first to make a serious move.
Magpies manager Alan Pardew has told Tottenham not to waste their time putting together a bid for the England international, even at double the amount.
Speaking after Newcastle's 1-1 draw at Sunderland, Pardew said: "They can bid whatever they like. He is not for sale.
"I am going to say it one last time, he is not for sale."
Tottenham travel to the north-east to play Newcastle at St James’ Park on Saturday and yesterday Redknapp appeared to rule out a move.
He said: "He’s a good player but we are nowhere near getting Andy Carroll. How much is he? You are talking £30m to £40m."
