Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has admitted he has tapped up Ashley Young…. but obviously only in jest!
‘I’m tapping him up – I’ve been round his house a couple of times. We’ve done the deal; he’s okay.’
He actually makes a very valid point though, with the fantastic Gareth Bale in the Spurs team, why would he need Ash as well?
‘We’ve got Gareth Bale – what would I do with him? I can’t get Niko Kranjcar on the pitch; he’s a fantastic player. What am I going to do with another left winger, give myself another headache?’
He says Spurs are already strong on the wing and that he has at no time tapped up Young.
So there you go. That won’t stop the next paper report when news is quiet… Young To Spurs…!
