Tottenham will not make a move for Carlos Tevez in the January transfer window as signing the striker would place the club's long-term future in danger, according to manager Harry Redknapp.

Despite claims that Tevez is close to a transfer to AC Milan, it has been suggested that Redknapp is keen on offering the 27-year-old a chance to stay in the Barclays Premier League with a move to White Hart Lane.

Tevez is reported to be on £250,000 a week at the Etihad Stadium - around four times what Spurs offer their top earners and Redknapp said: "I like him. He is a great player. He is fantastic. A battler, a real talent but we are not going to be able to get him."
