"We wouldn't get Shay Given from Man City, they don't seem to want to deal with us," Redknapp said.
"We have tried before to get their players. I tried to sign Craig Bellamy but they wouldn't let him come here.
"I like Shay Given but I don't know if he's fit either. He has had a bit of a shoulder problem. It has come out a couple of times, so we will have to wait and see.
"Adebayor would be difficult. I don't know if it's true but they were talking about him earning £170k a week."
