Harry Redknapp is eager to complete “one big signing” in the January transfer window to send out a message to Tottenham Hotspur’s Premier League rivals.

Third-placed Spurs currently trail Manchester City and Manchester United by 10 points having played two games less than the top two.

And the 64-year-old Tottenham boss wants to pull off a major transfer swoop to help the club’s title push.

“We’ve got to be a club looking to go places,” Redknapp told the Sun. “The potential is great here. We sell out every week, we’ve got good players.

“If we’re going to make a signing, let’s make one big signing. That would send out a message. But it’s difficult finding that player who would make a difference.”

Redknapp admitted that keeping his squad injury-free for the second half of the season will be his most difficult task as he looks to keep Spurs’ title challenge on track.

“Managing the squad and keeping them happy is probably my toughest challenge. It’s not easy,” Redknapp continued. “Younes Kaboul did his hamstring warming up on the sideline against Chelsea. You wonder what causes it.

“But you’ve got to try to keep your players fit now. You need a squad, you need to be able to change your squad around to keep some players fresh.”

And the Spurs boss paid credit to Norwich City ahead of their clash on Tuesday night at Carrow Road – but warned Paul Lambert’s side to be prepared for a tough relegation battle in the second half of the season.

“Norwich have done fantastically. They have done really well and Swansea have as well,” he said. “But I’m sure they know that there have been lots of clubs come up and play very well first half of the season and they know they’ve got to continue that second half, for sure. It’s going to be tight at the bottom.”
