Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp admits his top four targets are all Premiership-based.

Along with Manchester City's Irish defender Richard Dunne, Redknapp is ready to move for Shaun Wright-Phillips, of Chelsea, and Peter Crouch, the Liverpool striker, but has yet to make formal contact with the clubs. After winning the FA Cup last month with an exotic lineup, Redknapp wants to play safe in the transfer market.

"If you said I could sign four players now, they'd all be English - or Irish - and all play in the Premier League," Redknapp said. "The main reason for that is I know they're good players and I know they're ready."
