Transfer Rumors & Realities: The New, Old Faces

Juande Ramos' idea of a revolution was to tear the Tottenham squad apart and add some average faces. But his great revolution failed drastically.

But now Harry Redknapp wants to do the exact opposite. Instead of getting totally new average faces, he is ready to welcome back familiar average ex-Spurs stars.

Having signed Jermaine Defoe, Redknapp has just completed the signing of Pascal Chimbonda from Sunderland and is said to be interested in Liverpool 'flop' Robbie Keane.

One man who will almost certainly join Tottenham is Chelsea's long-serving Italian goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini. Cudicini has been warming the benches ever since Petr Cech moved to Stamford Bridge from Rennes.

Meanwhile, Redknapp's struggling ex-troops, Portsmouth, have completed the double signing of Porto's Pele and West Ham's Hayden Mullins.

Tony Adams is a busy man. After securing the two signings, he is still in the market and is interested in Milan's Brazilian turtle-like runner-but legend midfielder-Emerson and Newcastle's in-and-out of jail Joey Barton

Shay Given seems bound for an exit from Newcastle with the news that Toon reserve keeper Steve Harper is close to signing a new three-year deal at the club.

The Guardian have Given linked with a £10m move Manchester City. They will invest  £2.5m in David James adding to the losses of Tony Adams.  

After turning down another bid from Spurs for Kenwyne Jones, Sunderland boss Ricky Sbragia is looking to add "quality" to his "quality" squad.

Before leaving, R-R would like to pay tribute to Bayern's Willy Sagnol who was forced to hang his playing boots at only 31 after serious Achilles injury. Au revoir, Willy and good luck!

Until next time,
