Tottenham admit Pletikosa interest
Monday 19 July 2010
Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has revealed he could be set to sign Croatia goalkeeper Stipe Pletikosa.
Spartak Moscow star Pletikosa was reportedly close to joining Spurs last summer before suffering a knee injury.
Capped 80 times for his country, the 31-year-old would provide competition for Heurelho Gomes and Carlo Cudicini at White Hart Lane.
Redknapp told croatiansoccerreport.com: "I might be taking another goalkeeper from Croatia: Pletikosa.
"[There is] every chance I might be getting him so that's good."
Tottenham already have three Croatian players in Luka Modric, Vedran Corluka and Niko Kranjcar.
Redknapp added: "I would say the best players I ever managed in my life have been Croatian boys.
"They're fantastic boys. I have had Igor Stimac, Slaven Bilic, Davor Suker. Robert Prosinecki was a genius. Fantastic footballers and all great guys."
Redknapp is also reportedly battling Liverpool and Arsenal for free agent Joe Cole, while there has been talk of a cut-price move for Manchester City striker Craig Bellamy.
