Tottenham boss Redknapp believes Giovani will still be sold

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp expects to sell Giovani dos Santos this month.

Redknapp still expects Dos Santos to leave Tottenham this month despite seeing the Mexico forward score one and help set up two other goals in today's 3-0 win over Cheltenham.

"I think Gio will move if we get the right player (to replace him)," Redknapp said. "He's looking to move to be honest. We had a big bid from Italy last summer but he wants to go back to Spain.

"He needs to play and to be fit and train hard, and when he does that, he's got a chance.

"He's got talent, he's got ability, he just needs to work harder in training and get fitter.

"It's difficult for him here. We've already got Gareth Bale, Aaron Lennon and Niko Kranjcar, who was excellent today.

"He's a class player and he's unlucky not to play more, but it's hard. He's a fantastic footballer and a great boy."
