Tottenham Hotspur close to signing Spartak Moscow goalkeeper Stipe Pletikosa

Spurs boss feels Croatian players are the best he's ever managed
Harry Redknapp has admitted that Tottenham Hotspur are on the verge of signing Croatian goalkeeper Stipe Pletikosa.

The Tottenham Hotspur manager conceded he is looking to bolster his squad ahead of the new season, which now includes a Champions League campaign.

Redknapp revealed this summer’s transfer market was tough, however a potential deal could be in place for the 31-year-old Spartak Moscow stopper.

“We might be taking another Croatian, goalkeeper Stipe Pletikosa, we have every chance. We might be getting him and that’s good,” Redknapp told Croatian Soccer Report.

“Player wise it’s difficult really, we’re still looking for one or two. We’ll have to see who comes up.”

Spurs already have a Croatian contingency of Luka Modric, Vedran Corluka and Niko Kranjcar in their ranks and Redknapp would have no hesitation about adding another to his squad.

“I would say the best boys I’ve ever managed in my life have been Croatian. I’m not just saying that. I think they are fantastic," he added.

“I’ve had Igor Stimac, Slaven Bilic, Davor Suker. Robert Prosinecki was a genius. Fantastic footballers and all great guys too.”
