Redknapp hints at transfer target

Well it seems as though that it is not just Craig Bellamy that Spurs want to bring from Manchester down to North London. Redknapp has revealed that he does 'like' Stephen Ireland although a deal is unlikely. Redknapp spoke to the Sunday Mirror:

“I like him, but he is expensive.

“Maybe he’ll be £11m or 12. We wouldn't be in a position to spend that much on him if that’s what they’re wanting.”

Past seasons saw Ireland one of the top performers and real stars of the Manchester City midfield. Ever since, money and injuries have prevented those seasons being reminicent in the 2009/2010 season just gone. Although, in his words, you don't 'become a bad player overnight' and the player could do a job for Spurs whether a starter of a squad player.

If a deal were to materialise would Ireland be a good acquisition for the club?
