Portsmouth boss Redknapp goes for Tottenham's Defoe

Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp is ready to sign Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe this week.

The Mirror says Redknapp is hoping to persuade Pompey owner Sacha Gaydamak to invest in Defoe, who was going to be first on his hit-list if he had said 'yes' to the Newcastle United job.

Defoe was prepared to go to Newcastle after being shown the door at White Hart Lane and he would also consider following Redknapp to the south coast if Pompey come up with an £8m offer.
