Fears over Redknapp future
Harry Redknapp reportedly wants assurances over his Spurs future amid claims a Qatar consortium want to lure him to the Middle East.
The Spurs boss has enjoyed success at White Hart Lane and managed to guide the north Londoners to fourth in the Premier League last season but, because of Chelsea's Champions League success, they will not be in the top European competition next term. Redknapp only has one year left on his current deal at the club and is apparently anxious over his future. He wants talks with chairman Daniel Levy to find out if he has his long-term backing and if he will provide him with sufficent funds to improve his squad this summer. Reports on Friday say the former Portsmouth, Southampton and West Ham chief is wanted by officials in Qatar to take up a lucrative post there and Redknapp, who was overlooked for the England post despite being favourite, apparently fancies it if he does not get the backing he wants at White Hart Lane. It would be hard to envisage the Spurs boss leaving, however, and Levy is expected to back the experienced manager although talks over a new contract have, so far, stalled.
