Redknapp rules out Modric exit

Harry Redknapp has played down talk of Croatia international Luka Modric moving from Tottenham to Manchester United in the summer.

Sir Alex Ferguson recently revealed that he was a fan of the 24-year-old playmaker who moved to White Hart Lane from Dinamo Zagreb in 2008.

But Redknapp said of the speculation:"He's not a player we should even be thinking about selling or want to sell.

"I don't think there will be a problem keeping him here. I don't know what his contract situation is at the club but I'm sure he's happy here. He's a fantastic player and I want to keep my best players."

Redknapp also confirmed that he will hold new contract talks with Jamie O'Hara who has spent most of this season on loan with Portsmouth.

The former West Ham United, Pompey and Southampton boss added:"We'll see what happens when Jamie comes back. We'll have a chat with him and see what he wants to do.

"But he's done himself no harm. He's had a good season at Portsmouth. He wouldn't be cheap. He's a good player."
