Spurs will let Keane go.

Harry Redknapp has said he would be prepared to let Robbie Keane leave Tottenham this summer so long as he has someone to fill his shoes.

The Spurs boss hopes he can agree a swap deal which would see Gabriel Agbonlahor join Spurs in return for Keane, according to the News of the World.

Redknapp turns down Dubai offer.

Harry Redknapp is ready to sign a new two-year contract at White Hart Lane, after turning down a £3 million a year, tax-free deal to manage Al Ahli of Dubai. According to the News of the World, the Spurs boss was approached two weeks ago by the United Arab Emirates club but Redknapp is set to meet with Chairman Daniel Levy on Wednesday to secure his future at White Hart Lane.
