Tottenham face being priced out of a deal for Marseille striker Loic Remy.

The People says Spurs boss Harry Redknapp's bid to bring in striker Remy from Marseille is all but over after the French side's stunning midweek turnaround against Borussia Dortmund.

Redknapp was set to offer Roman Pavlyuchenko as a possible makeweight in the deal but now Marseille are set to stick by their £18m valuation and are in no hurry to sell.

Spurs, though, have been given a boost by Ajax's incredible Champions League exit.
