Harry Redknapp expects Daniel Levy to ‘pull a rabbit out the hat’ before transfer window closes


Spurs hope

Spurs have still not signed a single player with just over a week to go until the window shuts

Harry Redknapp has backed Daniel Levy, the Tottenham chairman, to ‘pull a rabbit out the hat’ before the transfer window closes next week.

Spurs have entered the final week of the open market without having signed a single player, and the club’s executive director Donna-Maria Cullen had to defend Levy over the lack of spending this summer.

Cullen made it clear Levy was not preventing Mauricio Pochettino, the Tottenham manager, from spending money, before going on to reassure fans that Pochettino is relaxed heading into the business end of the transfer window.

Levy is notorious for his tough stance on negotiations, and he is known to leave signings as late as possible to ensure Spurs get the best deal possible.

This approach has worried some of the Lilywhites faithful, especially as they have seen each of Tottenham’s top six rivals strengthen over the past few weeks.

But, in the view of former Spurs manager Redknapp, there is no need to be worried.

Having worked under Levy in north London, Redknapp knows just what makes Spurs’ chairman tick, and he believes Tottenham fans could be in for a surprise or two before the transfer window shuts on Thursday, August 9.

Speaking to the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, Redknapp said: “He [Pochettino] seems happy enough with the way it’s all going. He has a great relationship with Daniel, obviously.

“Daniel tends to move at the very last minute; he’ll have a two-for-one deal, a buy-one-get-one-free or something.

“He does those deals sometimes.

“But he pulls off great deals, and I’m sure he’ll have one or two rabbits in the hat he’s waiting to pull out at the last minute.”
