Tottenham boss Redknapp planning shock Man Utd raid for Ferdinand, Owen

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is planning a shock double raid on Manchester United for the January market. The Daily Mail says United senior pair Rio Ferdinand and Michael Owen is in his sights.

Tottenham are now unbeaten in seven in the league but the Spurs boss needs to add to a squad which is suffering badly from injuries.

Club captain Ledley King remains a constant worry over his troublesome knees, Michael Dawson could be out until next year with his achilles and William Gallas is only now making a return after several weeks out.

And Ferdinand was dropped for the game with Everton after his performance against Manchester City in the 6-1 mauling at Old Trafford and is now no longer certain of a place in the starting XI under Sir Alex Ferguson.

The White Hart Lane boss could offer him temporary way out to ensure he gets enough game time ahead of next summer's European Championships.

Redknapp would also be interested in taking Owen on-loan until the end of the season.
