Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is reportedly lo0king at the possibility of signing Birmingham City’s Alexander Hleb next summer.
The Belarus international is on a season-long loan at St Andrews from FC Barcelona and he is certain to move away permanently from the Camp Nou at the end of the current campaign. Hleb’s form has been fitful since his return to England though heis recent performances have been more reminiscent of the player who shone at Arsenal in his final season at the Emirates Stadium.
Tottenham are in the market for a winger but are reluctant to pay too much with Aaron Lennon remaining first choice on the right hand side with Gareth Bales destroying full backs on the left. Competition for places is needed though and with David Bentley not in Redknapp’s thoughts there is a dearth of quality back up at White Hart Lane.
Ashley Young has been linked heavily with a move to north London though his exorbitant prices tag of over £20m has cooled their interest. Hleb would be available for less than half that and at 29 years old he still has a few years left at the top level.
