Tottenham boss Redknapp expects Premiership move for Leeds striker Beckford

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp believes Leeds United striker Jermaine Beckford will move to the Premiership in the summer.

The 26-year-old hit the headlines when he netted the goal which knocked Manchester United out of the FA Cup at Old Trafford, and then went on to score a dramatic equaliser against Tottenham with a stoppage-time penalty to earn Leeds a fourth-round replay.

Beckford took his tally to the season to 24 with a brace against League One promotion rivals Colchester last weekend.

"He did well and would be a good gamble for someone in the Premier League, I am sure someone will take him," said the Spurs boss ahead of Wednesday night's trip to Elland Road.

"He is a free at the end of the season, and someone has probably done a deal with him, rather than paying a couple of million for him now.

"They will wait and take him at the end of the season on a free."
