Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is ready to return to Wigan Athletic for another Honduras gem after capturing Wilson Palacios from the Latics for £14 million last January he is set to bid £6 million for left back Maynor Figueroa.
Sunderland appeared favourites to take Figueroa but now that a big club has entered the fray the Hondurans head will have been turned firmly South and his back will have turned on old boss Steve Bruce with the player keen to team up again with his compatriot and best friend Palacios.
Spurs need to sell though to raise the cash to buy following chairman Daniel Levy`s comments this week that no extra funds will be available for January transfers and they will need to be self financed, but that wont put off Redknapp who is a renowned wheeler and dealer in the transfer market and first out the White Hart Lane door to raise some cash is expected to be Gareth Bale.
Figueroa is in great demand, he is a class player, strong, fast and skilful, he put in another good display at Liverpool last night and his reputation is growing quickly, Martinez doesn`t want to lose him before the summer but if a big bid comes in then he may reluctantly allow him to leave sooner rather than later as the Latics boss also needs to raise funds for his rebuilding programme at the DW Stadium.
