Tottenham Hotspur are desperate to land Sunderland striker Kenwyne Jones with a last-ditch cash + player bid that would see Darren Bent move the other way, according to Goal.com.
Harry Redknapp has made no secret of his desire to land the Trinidad and Tobago star who moved to the Stadium of Light in 2007.
Redknapp recently told press: “We have made an enquiry for Jones, I have no idea how far the chairman has got with it or even whether Sunderland want to do a deal.”
Spurs are keen to add to thier attacking options after landing Jermaine Defoe in the transfer window so far and Redknapp publicly blasted striker Darren Bent after a crucial miss against Portsmouth. Redknapp told press after the game “”My missus could have scored that one.”
Bent now seems to be surplus to requirements at White Hart Lane after falling behind Defoe and Roman Pavlyuchenko at Spurs and it seems Redknapp is keen to land a strong target man after the club have been linked with moves for Jones and West Ham striker Carlton Cole.
However, Sunderland manager Ricky Sbragia told the Northern Echo: “I can’t see the point of that one, Kenwyne is not for sale. We have players in our squad who need to go out, but there’s no way I want to lose the likes of Kenwyne.”
