Steven Pienaar and Niko Kranjcar could leave Tottenham

Redknapp eyes exit for Pienaar and Kranjcar as Spurs boss frees funds for January sales

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp could offload midfield outcasts Niko Kranjcar and Steven Pienaar as he eyes fresh recruits in the January transfer window.

Kranjcar and Pienaar have spent the majority of the season on the sidelines with Europa League offering the pair the best chance of a berth in the starting XI.

South Africa international Pienaar has struggled with injuries and could revitalise his career elsewhere in January – with former club Everton leading the chase.

And Croatia midfielder Kranjcar – who has made clear his desire to leave if first-team opportunities don”t come his way – will leave if the right offer arrives, according to The Mirror.

Spurs remain keen on Internacional”s Leandro Damiao but the 22-year-old”s price tag has gone up to 18million and his representatives recently held talks with Barcelona.

Redknapp would have to sell more players if he is to get the striker he wants. Vedran Corluka could yet follow Roman Pavlyuchenko out of White Hart Lane.
