Tottenham boss Redknapp: I wanted Tevez in January

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp feels Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez should be playing at White Hart Lane.

Redknapp reckons he could have done the same for Tottenham.

He admitted: "I said to the chairman Daniel Levy 'Can you get me Tevez?'

"That was my dream and so in January that's what I asked. It wasn't possible but that was my dream.

"The chairman would have loved Tevez but it wasn't do-able because his wages are whatever they are, £200,000-a-week. Daniel made some enquiries about Tevez and if he could have done it, the chairman would have.

"It was me thinking 'Tevez... he's not in the team, he's fallen out with Roberto Mancini'. You don't know unless you ask. It was just a little try."
