The Spurs manager, in his second transfer window at the club, is satisfied at how his squad has taken shape but he said if he could “find any player to improve us, I would do it”.

Redknapp has been linked with a bid for Toulouse's highly-rated 19-year-old midfielder Moussa Sissoko, who is of interest to a host of clubs and, as such, would not come cheaply. Toulouse rate him at �15m.

Brown, however, would cost in the region of �8m. The 24-year-old Scotland international joined Celtic for �4.4m from Hibernian in 2007 and he has become a key figure for club and country, winning plaudits for his box-to-box style.
