Harry Redknapp seeking assurances

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is set to meet with the north London club in the next 48 hours to seek assurances that he still has the board’s backing according to Mirror Football.

The White Hart Lane trainer is entering the final year of his contract with the Premier League side, with an extension yet to be signed due to the continued rumours over him taking the England job.

However, with Roy Hodgson getting the nod over Redknapp, the Spurs man is keen to sort out his future.

It is thought that Redknapp is eager to see whether the club still will back him despite the fact that Champions League football was not delivered in 2011-12, and under whispers that Daniel Levy could be interested in bringing in a new manager to instil a breath of fresh air at the club.

It is also believed that a Middle-East consortium are preparing to mount a financially lucrative offer for Redknapp to take over a coaching role in Qatar.

As yet there has been no official statement or comment from Redknapp, Levy or the club in terms of the manager’s future, but it is thought that there may well be news in the coming week.
