Tottenham boss Redknapp: No need for big spending to clinch top four spot

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp insists you don't have to break the bank to challenge for the top four.

At Spurs, Eidur Gudjohnsen arrived on a free in January and has proven an able stand-in for the injured Jermain Defoe, scored in each of his last two games.

Winger Niko Kranjcar cost just £3million while £5m defender Younes Kaboul ensures the loss of injured Sebastien Bassong will not stop their fine run of form.

Redknapp said: "You can find players. They are some out there. I took Kanu off the park when I was at Portsmouth. He was not playing. He was training on his own.

"He didn't have a club four days before the league started. I didn't have a second forward.

"I am sitting there and thinking 'Where has he gone after he was a free at West Brom? They said that he had gone nowhere, so I tracked him down and got him in."
