Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp says he wants to sign permanently on-loan AS Monaco striker Eidur Gudjohnsen.

The Icelander was superb in victory at Stoke City.

Gudjohnsen, on loan from Monaco until the end of the season, scored Spurs' opener then played a superb dummy to tee up the winner for Niko Kranjcar after Matthew Etherington had equalised from the penalty spot.

Redknapp said: "I want to keep him here next year. He's a real top player and he's got fantastic ability. With Jermain Defoe out injured he has got a big part to play.

"The chairman did the deal for him and I don't know the details but we are certainly interested. The rest of the lads like him and they really love playing with him."
