Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp admits blocking Giovani dos Santos from a move away during the summer.

Mexico international Dos Santos recently revealed he was disappointed and angry that he failed to secure a switch to Sevilla, but appeared as a late substitute in the victory at Wolves.

"Gio wanted to move but we couldn't let him go," said Redknapp.

"We had a £13m offer from Udinese with £10m down and the rest in do-able bonuses with a big sell-on, but he wouldn't go.

"He wanted to go to Seville who were offering around £3m. You can't blame the chairman for not letting him go. Gio is a talent with a big part to play.

"Only him and Luka are here now out of the lads who wanted to leave."
