Redknapp defends deals
Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has defended his January transfer dealing after coming under fire due to the poor run of form.
Having looked certainties for the Champions League qualification at one point, the wheels have come off for Redknapp's men and one win in their last nine has left questions being asked. Redknapp though has defended his decision to let Steven Pienaar and Vedran Corluka leave White Hart Lane on loan and bring in short-term signings Ryan Nelsen and Louis Saha, neither of whom are likely to be at the club beyond the summer. "Corluka wanted to go. He wanted to move," he told the Mirror. "Pienaar wanted to go, so we let him go. "We have no problem in midfield as I have got Sandro to play there. The only problem that we have had is that we are a little bit short up front. "I had five central defenders and now I have only two. I have lost Dawson, Kaboul and Nelsen. I had five. How many do you want? Five is plenty for two positions."
