Former midfielder Jamie Redknapp believes Tottenham’s decision to sell Kyle Walker to Manchester City now “looks like a huge mistake”.
Spurs have steadily slipped down the Premier League table after taking two points out of their last four matches in the league.
They now find themselves in sixth position – 18 points off leaders Manchester City – after once being described as Pep Guardiola’s nearest contenders.
And Redknapp believes that selling Walker to City in the summer now looks like bad business and could encourage others to leave the club.
“Letting Kyle Walker go in the summer looks like a huge mistake,” Redknapp said on The Debate.
“I thought it was good business at the time but now what it’s has done is set a precedent in the dressing room. It looks to me that the players know what the going rate is.
“Toby Alderweireld is one of the best centre-backs in the world – why has he not signed? Go and give him whatever he deserves.”
