Redknapp expecting quiet January

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp will not look to do too much business in the January transfer window - unless someone "a bit special" becomes available.

Redknapp, whose side are currently fifth in the Barclays Premier League standings and visit Aston Villa on Boxing Day, is content with his existing squad.

"We've got so many players here it would be hard fitting anybody in," he told Sky Sports News. "We're more than strong everywhere so unless it's someone who's a bit special, I don't think we'll be doing too much."

He continued: "If someone's there that we feel can make the difference - it might just be a character or leader or somebody who can give you something at the club.

"If that type of person's available then we'd be interested, but at the moment we're not closing in on anything."

Spurs have been linked with Newcastle's Andy Carroll, who has bagged 10 Premier League goals for the Magpies this season, but Redknapp does not see the in-form striker leaving St James' Park.

"He's got fantastic potential," added the Tottenham boss. "He's a top player, no doubt - he's a real handful and he's taken the Premier League by storm the first half of the season.

"If he was available I think there'd be plenty of people want him because he's an old-fashioned centre forward, but I see [Newcastle manager] Alan Pardew wants to keep him and I don't blame him, so I don't see him moving."
