Redknapp wonders why the top Premier League clubs didn't sign Adele Alli.

Former Tottenham and QPR manager Harry Redknapp has blasted the top Premier League sides for not securing the services of Dele Alli.

Redknapp said it's a shame Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United didn't buy the 19-year-old who moved from Milton Keynes Dons to White Hart Lane for a low fee.

He told the Evening Standard: "Tottenham paid £5million for him in the end, which is nothing. It is an amazing buy. He’s worth at least £20m now if not a lot more. And Spurs had a clear run at signing him!"

The 68-year-old: "It shames the recruitment networks at the top clubs — who could think further ahead — that they didn’t go in for him.

"Why didn’t Arsenal sign him? Don’t tell me Chelsea shouldn’t have bought him for £5m. What’s £5m to Manchester United, especially with the way they throw their money around now? Okay, Liverpool did show some interest but for, whatever reason, did not follow it through."

Dele Alli scored a wonder goal against France on his first start for England on Tuesday night.
