Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is pleased with the loan signing of Spartak Moscow goalkeeper Stipe Pletikosa.

Redknapp thinks that Pletikosa will prove good cover for Heurelho Gomes, as Spurs are planning to send Ben Alnwick on loan.

"I thought Stipe was a great loan for us, we couldn't go wrong on that one. We're looking to loan Ben Alnwick out and we needed cover," said the former Portsmouth, Southampton and West Ham manager.

"Carlo Cudicini has just come back from a serious injury and Gomes is also injured at the moment. It was important to get another goalkeeper in.

"Stipe's a top goalkeeper, you don't get all those caps for Croatia otherwise. He's also a great character and I'm sure he'll do well for us."
