Harry Redknapp has insisted Tottenham have no intention of selling midfielder Niko Kranjcar in January.

20635 - Harry Redknapp rules out Kranjcar sale

The Croatian is one of the most talented midfielders in the Premier League, but has found first-team chances limited this term. Queens Park Rangers boss Mark Hughes is reported to be keen on signing Kranjcar in January, but his hopes of a move look set to be dashed.

"No chance. I wouldn't sell Niko," Redknapp said. "He might play Sunday.

"I love Niko. He's a real footballer, a good player. He's just been unlucky, but he's important to me.

"You could say, 'Well, why don't you bloody play him?' But I've got Gareth Bale. It's been hard to get him in the team."
