Sunderland and Tottenham fail to agree Ferdinand/Hutton trade

Anton Ferdinand and Alan Hutton will both be staying at their current clubs after Sunderland and Tottenham failed to come to an agreement for a trade.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp was keen to bring in Black Cats defender Ferdinand as he is short on central defensive options and was prepared to use right-back Hutton for a direct trade.

However, the deal did fall through with Redknapp saying it was only a possible idea.

"It was only something that was put to us but it was never going to happen," he told Sky Sports News.

"Alan Hutton and Anton Ferdinand was something that was put about a bit, but it didn't happen."
