Contract deal needs sorting - Harry
Harry Redknapp has warned Spurs the lack of a new contract for him as manager is likely to unsettle his playing squad at the club.
Redknapp angrily denied reports on Tuesday night claiming he had resigned from his post as Tottenham manager and claimed that was something he would not be doing.
But he did point out that until his own future was sorted out, he is entering the last year of his present deal, it would be hard to persuade the players currently at White Hart Lane to commit long term to the club.
Redknapp said: "The simple situation is, I've got a year left on my contract. It's up to Tottenham whether they want to extend that contract or not.
"If they don't extend it and I go into my last year, it's not an easy one when players know you've only got a year left.
"It's not a case of me looking for security. What it's about is players knowing you've only got one year left on your contract and knowing that it doesn't work, basically.
"I think it's a situation of, 'well, he might not be here next year'. You don't let players run into the last year of their contract if you think they're any good, and you don't let managers run into the last year of their contract if you think they're any good.
"It's up to Tottenham. If they think I'm OK and I've done a decent job and deserve an extension, they'll give it to me."
