Redknapp accuses Manchester City of rough transfer tactics

9:07 am on 6 May 2010

English football club Manchester City say they're consulting their lawyers after accusations from Tottenham Manager Harry Redknapp that they used underhand tactics in the transfer market.

The Spurs Manager claims the club was warned off trying to sign the Wales striker Craig Bellamy by City, who he says threatened to outbid him for the Honduran midfielder Wilson Palacios if he didn't.

The move increases tensions ahead of this mornings Premier League match between the two clubs, which could prove decisive in the battle for fourth and the final Champions League qualifying position.
