Tottenham boss Redknapp: Emmanuel Mbola? Never heard of him!

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp denies a deal for Zambian kid Emmanuel Mbola.

The north London club were said to be closing in on a £1million deal for the left-back, who, despite being just 16, has 20 caps and was the youngest player at this year's Africa Cup of Nations.

Redknapp insists Mbola is not on his radar - and doesn't even seem to know where the Pyunik Yerevan player is from!

"I don't know him," said the Spurs boss. "We had two kids here from Nigeria training, but I don't know anything about a boy from Angola (sic).

"Maybe the academy have brought him in, but he certainly is not training with the first team."
