Harry Redknapp: Could still add a loanee or two to his squad

Redknapp added two more players - Leroy Fer and Eduardo Vargas - to his squad in the last couple of days as he was preparing for the trip to former side Tottenham on Sunday.

The 67-year-old is not ruling out another move before the transfer window shuts on September 1, with Wilfried Zaha having been linked with a loan deal from Manchester United, but he is not too concerned if his dealings for the summer are already finished.

"The club have been great, I have been pleased with the players we have brought in, it has made a big difference," Redknapp said.

"We came back in pre-season and we were really, really short of numbers and we have brought some quality players in. It is up to us now to get on and do the job, if there is another one to come in then great - if not then we will see."

Redknapp will have no qualms about making another addition to his squad, but he admits any more deals will most likely have to be temporary, as the purse-strings are a little tighter for him now.

"We were the loan Rangers in the Championship last season," Redknapp joked.

"We've still got two loans that we can use from the Premier League if we want to. If they were to loan him (Zaha), if he did become available I'm sure he would be a player a lot of clubs would be interested in. If we thought he was available he would certainly be of interest."

And Redknapp is confident he will not have to find a late replacement for Loic Remy, who had been linked with a move away over the summer but started their Premier League opener against Hull City last weekend, a game they lost 1-0 after Charlie Austin missed a penalty.

"I'm confident he'll be here," he said.

"I've spoken with Loic, he's been excellent in training and his attitude has been world class. Unless a top six club comes in, I think he'll be happy to stay here. He's seen we've brought some good players in.

"There's been no Tottenham enquiry - there's been talk of the chairman talking to Daniel (Levy), but certainly I've not been involved."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
