Redknapp still wants Huntelaar

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp remains keen to sign Real Madrid striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar despite adding England striker Peter Crouch to his squad earlier this week.

Huntelaar was set to join German side Stuttgart last week only for the move to fall through due to the player's wage demands. And Redknapp confirmed he remains very much interested in the Holland striker, although any move would be subject to Darren Bent moving on.

"It is definitely not a no go. It is still a possibility. If you look at his goalscoring record, it is incredible," said Redknapp.

"If he is available then again he is a player that interests me. I think if any top-class player becomes available then you have to be interested and if Darren Bent does go then maybe we will be interested.

"You cannot have too many good players. Competition for places is what it is all about. Look at Manchester United, you could pick two teams from their squad last year."

Meanwhile, Redknapp was stunned to hear that Spurs target Patrick Vieira has been linked with a return to Arsenal.

"That is surprising but I had heard nothing about it," he said. "I am sure he will be a good signing whoever he signs for.

"He belonged to Arsenal, he was fantastic there so if an opportunity to go back there came along then I'm sure he would take it.

"But I haven't spoke to anyone, it could only be a rumour so I don't know."
