Tottenham’s new £12m midfielder

Harry Redknapp has got his cheque book out again and snapped up Wilson Palacios from Wigan for £12m. The Tottenham manager has enjoyed scribbling his signature this transfer window after re-signing goal machine Jermaine Defoe last week. The major money deal (exc. Kaka) for Palacios is a rapid increase since the Honduras player signed for Wigan for only £1m a year ago.

"Palacios is a player I have liked since I first saw him, and he has the ability to go on to become a top, top player” said ‘Arry Redknapp. "I just like the way he plays. He is an all-round modern midfielder - he gets after it, he is box-to-box.” It’s not been confirmed if Palacios will receive a work permit in time to play for Tottenham against Manchester United on Saturday.
