Tottenham boss Redknapp ready to cancel Defoe op

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp says they're ready to cancel a scheduled groin op for Jermain Defoe.

Certainly, today's opponents Wigan Athletic won't be happy that Defoe may cancel his planned hernia operation, set for next Tuesday, as he is suffering no pain.

The striker hit Wigan for five in last season's 9-1 defeat.

Redknapp said: "He came in today and felt no pain and if it is the same tomorrow we will cancel the operation. If not we'll get it done."
