Tottenham boss Redknapp frustrated Begovic chose Stoke

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp admits he was frustrated missing out on Asmir Begovic.

The former Portsmouth goalkeeper signed with Stoke City on transfer deadline day Monday.

Redknapp told the club's website: "We did try for another goalkeeper too. We thought we had Asmir Begovic from Portsmouth - he came here with his agent, had a medical on Friday but in the end decided to go to Stoke. That is how it goes sometimes. We did not get too close to doing anything else in that position besides that.

"I was looking for a bit of cover for Heurelho Gomes, but we do already have Ben Alnwick, a young lad who is a good goalkeeper and won't let us down, as well as Jimmy Walker so we have backup in that area."
