Harry Not in For Petrov

Harry Redknapp has let it be known that Martin Petrov won't be joining Spurs in the summer. He was quoted as saying that he had never thought about bringing him to Spurs, so the rumors that we have all been reading in the last week or so are rubbish, like most of what you read.

I think that Harry is being truthful on this one, sometimes he acts like he isn't interested to get a better deal, but Petrov has been out injured since October, and he is 30 years old. It seems weird to talk about a player who's only 30 as someone who's too old to come to the club, but I'm pretty sure Harry is looking to younger players.

So we all know that Harry is looking to bolster the left side in the summer, so the question now becomes who is wanting? The most obvious answer is Stuart Downing from Boro. Boro did get a win yesterday, but I still think that they are going down in the summer and there will be a fire sale at the Riverside. The other name that is on people's lips would be Aidan McGeady from Celtic.

Either player is younger than Petrov, though probably will be more expensive. Personally, I am not sold on either of the two that seem to be on Harry's wish list, but once again I'm reminded in not in charge of the transfer policy at the club. Is there another dark horse from the continent that might make their way to the club in the summer? Who knows, but it is interesting that Harry supposedly doesn't have any interest in Petrov. We'll see what happens in the window.
