Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has admitted to lodging a bid for Sunderland striker Kenwyne Jones.
Spurs have made no secret of their desire to bolster their attacking unit during the January transfer window, having already secured Jermain Defoe's arrival from Portsmouth.
They have been heavily linked with Jones for some time and it comes as no surprise that they have made a move.
Redknapp, though, insists he remains in the dark as to the progress of the bid, admitting a deal for the Trinidad & Tobago international is far from a foregone conclusion.
"We have made an enquiry for Jones," he confirmed.
"I have no idea how far the chairman has got with it or even whether Sunderland want to do a deal."
