Redknapp blasts transfer weakness


Tottenham may be performing better than Chelsea in the league this season, but manager Harry Redknapp admits there is no chance of the north London club being able to compete with the Blues in the transfer market.

Spurs are currently third in the Barclays Premier League after an excellent run of one defeat in 17 matches left them just six points off leaders Manchester City at the half way stage. And a five-point advantage over Chelsea will increase further if they win their game in hand against Everton on Wednesday.

Redknapp concedes, however, that Spurs are fighting a losing battle against Chelsea off the field, as the Blues close in on a deal to bring Bolton defender Gary Cahill to Stamford Bridge. He said: "It's difficult trying to beat Chelsea if you're going for the same player, because their wage structure would be on a different level to ours."
