SAHA SUR­PRISE

Midweek Sport - - RACING EXTRA - By MATT BUT­LER

SPURS boss Harry Redknapp last night left him­self open to ac­cu­sa­tions he is bas­ing his tax-dodge de­fence on IN­SAN­ITY af­ter he signed Louis Saha from Ever­ton.

Redknapp, cur­rently on trial for tax eva­sion from when he was at Portsmouth, has snapped up the striker on an 18-month deal.

It is a sur­prise move from the ti­tle-chasers as Saha was sur­plus to re­quire­ments at Good­i­son Park even be­fore the ar­rival of Ni­kica Jelavic from Rangers. Saha was un­likely to be of­fered an­other con­tract this sum­mer and would have been avail­able on a free.

Bayer Lev­erkusen will de­cide in the sum­mer whether to take Ve­dran Cor­luka on a per­ma­nent trans­fer.

The Ger­man side signed the 25-year-old on loan from Spurs un­til the end of the sea­son and have an op­tion to trig­ger a deal.
