Improvement in injury enhances Stipe Pletikosa's Tottenham Hotspur transfer

Goalkeeper speaks out over summer switch.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp could bolster his goalkeeping ranks  with the acquisition of Stipe Pletikosa, 31, in the summer, who informed the Daily Mail that he intends to "renew talks" with the north London outfit when the current season is concluded.

A highly-rated Croatia international, Pletikosa was unable to seal a mid-season switch to the White Hart Lane outfit due to an injury to his knee ligament that required surgery. 

"Unfortunately, it wasn’t realistic to complete the transfer to London this winter," Pletikosa reportedly said.

"We have agreed to renew talks before the summer and I hope that I will finally have better luck when it comes to England," he added.

"Spurs have shown me great respect and I can’t express my gratitude to Redknapp and his associates for the attention they have given to me."

Redknapp, who harbours firm faith in current no.1 Huerelho Gomes, is rumoured to be keen on supplementing the position in order to provide competition for the Brazilian.

During the winter window, the club were allegedly in talks with former Portsmouth player Asmir Begovic, who spoke out over Spurs' interest, shunning the Lilywhites to join Stoke City.

Watford glovesman Scott Loach, as well as twice-capped Republic of Ireland international Keiren Westwood were also linked.
