Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has told Jermain Defoe to be ready for their trip to Manchester City.

He wrote in The Sun: "Jermain Defoe is one of the finest finishers I've seen. It's been difficult for him at Tottenham this season and I can understand his frustration.

"With Emmanuel Adebayor here, it's been a case of Manu and who else up front?

"Between 5ft 7in Jermain and Rafael van der Vaart it's been a tough call and Defoe's not played as much as he would have liked.

"Now, with Manu's loan terms preventing him from playing against his parent club Man City, Jermain has a chance to make a huge impact on the title race and the competition to get into the Champions League next season."
