Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp says he'd love to find another William Gallas-type in the January market.

Redknapp feels his squad still lacks vocal leaders.

Redknapp admits he would give his right arm for a no-­nonsense defender in the mould of England hard men Tony Adams, John Terry or Jamie Carragher.

He said: “If we could find ­someone, a leader, who would make a big difference to us then I know the chairman would do it. But it’s hard to find somebody who would change the place and be a bit of a leader.

“You just want someone who can give you that little lift. You’re always looking for that sort of ­person.

“We’re a very quiet team. We haven’t got any players you would call ­leaders. But where are those people? They’re just not around.

“There used to be loads of ­characters but not any more. It’s modern life, I suppose."
