Harry Redknapp admits he wanted to sign Arsenal star Santi Cazorla for Tottenham.

Redknapp revealed in The Sun: "He first really caught my eye a couple of years ago in a pre-season game, when he was still with Villarreal.

"They came to Tottenham for a pre-season game and he absolutely ran the show - he was fantastic.

"I really wanted him at White Hart Lane after that and he was always top of my list to bring to Spurs, but we never managed it."
