Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has played down the rumours linking Aston Villa’s Ashley Young with a switch to White Hart Lane.

The 25-year-old winger, who has been regularly linked with the London side, has stalled on signing a new deal at Villa Park with manager Gerard Houiller suggesting his head had been turned by a rival side.

Redknapp is a known admirer of Young having made previous attempts to sign the England international, but the 61-year-old insists he is no longer interested in the former Watford forward.

“We’ve got Gareth Bale – what would I do with him (Young)?” Redknapp asked.

“I can’t get Niko Kranjcar on the pitch; he’s a fantastic player.

“What am I going to do with another left winger, give myself another headache?

He added: “I’m strong in those (wing) positions: I’ve got Aaron Lennon, got Gareth Bale, got Luka Modric who can play off the left. It’s hard enough as it is.”
