Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp admits he is working the loan market this summer.
Redknapp, who is preparing for a Champions League qualifier in mid-August, has therefore admitted that he could focus on loan transfers in order to secure cut-price deals.
He told the Mirror: "I can see loans happening. I've got three players in mind that would not cost a lot of money.
"If we can pull off the deals you are talking about £8million or £9million for three players. Loans would certainly be a real possibility.
"People are going to loan players from all over the world, there will be loads because clubs are struggling to pay the wages. There will be high earners they have to loan out."
