Redknapp keen to agree new Tottenham contract

Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp does not want the club to wait much longer to offer him a new contract, according to the Independent. Redknapp’s current deal expires in a year but so far Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has been slow to agree new terms with the 65-year-old.

The newspaper adds that talks between Levy and Redknapp were underway earlier this year but ground to a halt when Redknapp was strongly linked with replacing Fabio Capello as England Head Coach. But when Roy Hodgson was chosen by the Football Association as Capello’s successor, negotiations between the manager and the chairman were slow to resume amid speculation the relationship between the pair was on the verge of breaking down.

Redknapp however rejected the notion that he and Levy did not see eye to eye, insisting that his bond with the chairman is as strong as it could possibly be. Redknapp continued that not only were he and Levy working well together, but that his concern over his contract was based more on what the Tottenham players were thinking rather than his own future.

He said: “I’ve never had a problem with Daniel Levy. I’ve probably got on as well with Daniel as I could any [chairman]. The simple situation is, I’ve got a year left on my contract. It’s not a case of me looking for security. What it’s about is players knowing you’ve only got a year left on your contract and knowing that it doesn’t work.
