thumbnail Hello,

The Mexican almost left White Hart Lane at the end of last season but Spurs boss is looking to offload the winger for a fee before his contract expires in the summer of 2013

Giovani dos Santos is likely to leave Tottenham in the summer, according to manager Harry Redknapp.

The Mexican winger has made only 13 appearences for the north London side since his £4.7 million move from Barcelona in 2008 and, although the Spurs boss concedes that he is a very talented player, he is deemed surplus to requirements at White Hart Lane.

With the 22-year-old's contract expiring at the end of next season, the former Portsmouth boss has decided to cash in on him.

"Gio is a good player and is a good lad. He has good ability but in the end his contract is gradually running out so I don't know what you'd get for him in the end," Redknapp told reporters.

"He is on the bench, he has got great ability, we nearly sold him at the start of the season for £13m to Udinese."

"The chairman of Udinese came over and had a chat with the chairman and he wouldn't go and that was a lot of money.

"I don't think he wants to sign a new one [contract] so I think the £13m would have been a good deal."
