Redknapp confirms Mexican dos Santos on outer at Tottenham

According to Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp, Giovani dos Santos is almost certain to leave over the summer. Redknapp admits that he is a talented player, but concedes the club need to cash in on the 22 year old this summer - before his contract expires at the end of next season.

"He is on the bench, he has got great ability, we nearly sold him at the start of the season for £13million to Udinese," Redknapp said.

"The chairman of Udinese came over and had a chat with the chairman and he wouldn't go and that was a lot of money.

"Gio is a good player and is a good lad. He has good ability but in the end his contract is gradually running out so I don't know what you'd get for him in the end.

"I don't think he wants to sign a new one so I think the £13million would have been a good deal."
