Tottenham Hotspur fans are putting down their pool cues and rushing over to the bar here in the Football Transfer Tavern to chew over the latest offering from Metro.
The publication claim that Harry Redknapp has approached Spurs over a loan deal for not one, but two of their forwards.
Of course, we are in the middle of the emergency loan window at the minute and Championship clubs are rushing to get players in to boost their squad numbers.
He may not like the tag, but as one of our punters notes, there is no denying Redknapp is a wheeler dealer.
The former Spurs manager is second to none in the transfer market and is looking to bring in both youth and experience at the same time. This is courtesy of his former club, who are looking to offload the out of favour Emmanuel Adebayor.
Redknapp knows the Togolese forward well and knows exactly how to handle him – something Andre Villas-Boas is currently struggling with.
The current Spurs boss is desperate to get Adebayor out of the club and will send him on loan to Loftus Road should the sides agree a financial package. Young Harry Kane meanwhile is one for the future at White Hart Lane, and needs to be playing regular football to improve.
Given Redknapp is keen to get in a couple of strikers, Kane will be afforded that playing time in the Championship with the Hoops.
Over pie and mash, one of our punters comments that Redknapp is aware that he may miss out on the duo – and has a shortlist that he will be working his way through.
There is no doubting that QPR need a forward after Bobby Zamora and Andrew Johnson picked up injuries and Spurs need to offload at least one of theirs. As one of our punters quips, it seems like a match made in heaven.
