Tottenham boss Redknapp on Gallas deal: Not like he is Tony Adams!

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is confident fans will accept the signing of William Gallas.

Last night the Tottenham manager was certainly close to sealing the deal for defender Gallas.

The France centre back is available on a free transfer after rejecting the offer of a two-year deal at The Emirates because it amounted to a significant pay-cut.

He is now close to agreeing a one-year deal with Arsenal's fiercest rivals.

Redknapp said of Gallas, 32: "He's been an Arsenal player but he was at Chelsea before that and playing abroad before he arrived there.

"It's not like we would be signing Tony Adams. He's a good player and he would be a very useful addition to our squad."
