“Another good player, Ghanaian boy, strong, aggressive, good midfield player," Redknapp said.

“It would probably be one or the other. You have got to see what you can get - and if you can get them both you have got to make a decision.

“If you can only get one, you take him and if you can’t get any - you just pray. We are trying to get one of them in.”
