Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp admits he'd be happy to take some of Manchester City's stars off their hands.

Redknapp maintains he has a very strong squad to ­compete with City, but he isn't deluded and says there are one or two players they have he wouldn't have minded signing, if Spurs had the financial power to compete.

He told the Sunday Mirror: "I'd be a liar if I said I didn't like David Silva, Sergio Aguero and Carlos Tevez.

"They are fantastic players and with them in your side you would have to fancy your chances, wouldn't you."
