Harry Redknapp claims that he would never consider selling Jermain Defoe because he believes that the striker would score against Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has revealed that he would never consider selling Jermain Defoe.

The boss confirmed that he turned down an offer for the striker in the summer because he was worried that Defoe would return to score against Spurs.

"I'd be scared to sell him," Redknapp told a press conference. "He'd return and haunt you.

"Someone asked if I'd do a swap with someone they couldn't give away. I thought he was drunk."

Defoe has scored two goals in the Premier League this season.
