Tottenham boss Redknapp: We tried for Man City signing Barry

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp admits he tried to sign for former Aston Villa midfielder Gareth Barry.

In his column for The Sun, Redknapp wrote: "This week, I tried to sign Gareth Barry. I felt he would be a good addition for Spurs and I knew we had to make a decent offer for a top England player.

"Liverpool were also prepared to make a big offer.

"But we have both been blown out of the water by Manchester City.

"They offered a far bigger transfer fee and are giving the lad much bigger wages. We could not get near."
