Spartak Moscow goalkeeper Stipe Pletikosa could still make a move to Tottenham in the summer.
"Unfortunately, it wasn't realistic to complete the transfer to London this winter," said Pletikosa.
"We have agreed to renew talks before the summer and I hope that I will finally have better luck when it comes to England. Spurs have shown me great respect and I can't express my gratitude to Redknapp and his associates for the attention they have given to me.
"Especially when a player is injured, it really means a lot."
