Spurs are understood to be planning beyond Redknapp’s tenure. Levy was keen on Brendan Rodgers taking over in the event of a vacancy and there were even suggestions Spurs could make an audacious move to extract Rodgers from Anfield just days into his Liverpool reign, given he was thought to be seriously interested in the Tottenham position had it been available.

Liverpool would strongly rebuff any such approach and Moyes is more attainable although Everton would obviously be reluctant to let him go.

Surely this can’t be accurate. There is absolutely no way that Brendan Rodgers would leave Liverpool weeks into his Anfield tenure regardless of who came calling, such an act would clearly make him an extremely unpopular person in many circles and would probably result in Tottenham having to pay a huge sum in compensation.

Daniel Levy surprisingly took the decision to axe Harry Redknapp despite the 65 year old’s superb record at the North London club. The former West Ham boss guided Tottenham to two top four finishes and a Champions League Quarter Final having taken over from Juande Ramos with Spurs in the relegation zone.

For whatever reason Levy chose to not open talks over a new deal and with just a year to run on his current contract Redknapp understandably felt he was not on a solid footing and so it proved.

Rodgers took over from Kenny Dalglish who was sacked having guided Liverpool to their worst top tier finish in over 60 years. However the Scot did secure a spot in the Europa League for next term thanks to a Carling Cup triumph.
