Tottenham boss Redknapp happy to take Kranjcar over Villa ace Downing

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has no regrets not signing Aston Villa midfielder Stewart Downing while he was available from Middlesbrough.

Spurs face Villa today with Redknapp happy he can count on Niko Kranjcar in midfield.

"They were asking us for £15 million for Downing and it all got too much," Redknapp said. "I like Downing as well, but Niko has been terrific. He came in and I didn't need anybody to play wide. Niko's been unbelievable."
