FA chiefs will have to pay Tottenham £5million to make Harry Redknapp the next England boss.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will put up a fight to keep ‘Arry, who has 17 months left on his current £3m-a-year contract, and will demand a high compensation fee.

Redknapp is the Football Association’s outstanding candidate and they want to name their new man next week.

However, England Under-21 boss Stuart Pearce will still take temporary charge of the seniors for the friendly against Holland on February 29 – as revealed in the Mirror.

It is understood that Levy wants Redknapp to concentrate on Spurs for the remainder of the season as they make a surprise push for the title, but several bookies have closed betting on him succeeding Fabio Capello.

It has seemed just a matter of time before Harry Redknapp was brought in to become the next England boss though one wonders if Tottenham are ready to give up just yet. The White Hart Lane boss has been a huge succcess since his move to the North London club back in 2008 and his side are arguably the only challengers to Man City & Man United for the Premier League title so one would imagine that any move to bring in the former West Ham manager would occur after the season comes to an end in May.
