Harry’s had it! No new deal for Spurs boss Redknapp as Levy attempts to force him out
Harry Redknapp’s reign as Tottenham manager is likely to come to an end today, with the club refusing to offer him a new contract in a tactic to try to force him out.
A tense relationship between Redknapp and chairman Daniel Levy has reached breaking point and a severance package is likely to be discussed when they meet alone for the first time this summer. Levy will try to avoid paying the last year of his contract, worth around £3million.

Yesterday Harry Redknapp issued a firm denial that he had quit Tottenham but this source appears to believe that the White Hart Lane boss will be forced out by chairman Daniel Levy, if that is the case one has to wonder why the relationship between the pair has turned so sour.
Having led Spurs to two top four finishes and a Champions League quarter-final one would have thought that Levy would wish to keep Redknapp at the helm but this doesn’t appear to be the case as the 65 year old has grown increasingly exasperated by the length of time being taken over any new contract offer.
Harry Redknapp was strongly linked with the England manager’s post before it was handed to Roy Hodgson and perhaps the relationship between the Tottenham manager and the club’s owner suffered as a result.
Tottenham had been a genuine title challenger for much of last season but a poor run of form saw the club only just creep into fourth spot only to see Chelsea snatch their Champions League spot by beating Bayern Munich in the final of the competition and secure the last remaining slot for next term.
