Spurs in shock loan moves for strike duo

Tottenham are reportedly set to make audacious attempts to sign Craig Bellamy and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar on loan.

Spurs are determined to increase their goalscoring options ahead of their maiden Champions League campaign, and Harry Redknapp has earmarked Manchester City striker Bellamy and AC Milan hotshot Huntelaar as the men to bring his team success this season.

But the Daily Mirror suggests that Redknapp has already seen a £4 million for Bellamy rebuffed, and the offer of a loan deal for Huntelaar also declined.

However, with the Welshman surplus to requirements at City and the Dutch marksman struggling to break into the first team at the San Siro, Redknapp remains confident that he can seal a temporary deal for at least one of his targets.

"I can see loans happening. I’ve got three players in mind that would not cost a lot money," he said.

“If we can pull off the deals you are talking about £8million or £9million for three players. Loans would certainly be a real possibility.

“People are going to loan players from all over the world, there will be loads because clubs are struggling to pay the wages. There will be high earners they have to loan out.”

Despite Redknapp's assurances, however, only last week Huntelaar's representative poured cold water on the idea that his client would be moving to England before the new season.

“There is no interest from any Premier League clubs. I have read the reports, but these are just rumours. He [Huntelaar] is happy in Milan and the club are happy with him. Milan want to keep him and he wants to stay,” Arnoldus Oosterveer told

“He will remain at the club this summer.”
