Tottenham have this afternoon completed the signing of Monaco striker Eidur Gudjohnsen on a six-month loan deal.
It was reported earlier this week that the former Chelsea man had agreed terms on a move to Tottenham’s London rivals West Ham, however Harry Redknapp looks to have got his man with just days to go before the transfer window shuts.
New West Ham co-owner David Sullivan critics Tottenham’s perusal of the 31-year old yesterday saying : “We thought we had a deal and the player had even had a medical. We then heard that Tottenham were trying to speak to the player. I can’t say I am happy about it but I believe in Karma and what goes around, comes around.”
Redknapp now has five top strikers at his disposal, however it is thought that Roman Pavlyuchenko will be on his way out of White Hart Lane in the coming days, with Birmingham likely to be his destination.
Portsmouth’s Younes Kaboul is also understood to be close to re-joining Tottenham. The 24-year old defender has attracted interest from several Premier League clubs during this window including one of Tottenham’s main rivals for 4th spot this season, Manchester City.
Kaboul is likely to cost Tottenhamsome where near the £8 million mark and to be honest, I don’t feel that represents value for money. He is a decent defender, however I strongly believe he’s not Spurs material. There is no doubt Redknapp needs a new defender, with the likes of Ledly King and Jonathan Woodgate rarely fully fit but I am sure they could have done a lot better than Kaboul.
