Redknapp 'set to leave Spurs'
Harry Redknapp is set to leave Tottenham Hotspur after nearly four years in charge at White Hart Lane, according to reports by Sky Sports and ESPN.
Redknapp is reported to have held talks with chairman Daniel Levy amid claims the 65-year-old's tenure at White Hart Lane is set to come to an end.
The Spurs manager's camp and the club have not commented on reports that both parties have not been able to reach agreement over an extension to his current deal, which is due to expire next summer.
It has been claimed that Levy is only willing to offer Redknapp a rolling 12-month contract whereas the former Portsmouth manager is thought to want a longer deal that will make the London club his last job in management.
Redknapp did achieve Levy's goal of reaching the top four last term, but Spurs missed out on playing in Europe's top club competition after Chelsea's penalty shootout win over Bayern Munich last month.
An exit may seem harsh on Redknapp but his critics point to the fact that his team would have qualified directly for the Champions League had they not thrown away a 10-point lead over Arsenal towards the end of the season after a poor run of form.
Another source of frustration for Redknapp's critics is that the run coincided with his public flirtation with the idea of becoming England manager, although he denied that had an impact on results.
Redknapp has repeated his call for Levy to hand him a new deal, claiming the impasse could see an exodus of the club's top players like Luka Modric and Gareth Bale.
"The simple situation is, I've got a year left on my contract," he told ESPN Soccernet. "It's up to Tottenham whether they want to extend that contract or not."
