Palacios poised for Spurs move

Wilson Palacios has undergone a medical at Stoke on Sunday, Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has confirmed.

Midfielder Palacios has not played for Tottenham this season and is not in Redknapp's plans as he intends to complete a move for West Ham's Scott Parker before the transfer window closes on Wednesday night.

"Wilson Palacios is having a medical at Stoke," Redknapp said after Sunday`s 5-1 defeat to Manchester City.

Peter Crouch has also been linked with a move to the Potters, but Redknapp does not want to see the striker leave.

"I don't know what the latest situation is with Crouchy," the 64-year-old said.

"People say we want to sell Crouch to Stoke and it's in the papers every day. Crouchy has to play under that. It's very difficult.

"As far as I know he is staying."

Parker's move to White Hart Lane is likely to move a step closer if Palacios moves on to the Britannia Stadium.

The England midfielder appears to have played his last game for the Hammers after being left out of the club's matchday squad for Sunday's win at Nottingham Forest.
