Redknapp, whose team very narrowly missed out on Champions League qualification for next season, has only a year left to run on his current deal.
“If they don’t extend it and I go into my last year, it’s not an easy one when players know you’ve only got a year left,” he said. “It’s not a case of me looking for security. What it’s about is players knowing you’ve only got year left on your contract and knowing that it doesn’t work, basically.”
The manager’s relationship with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has come under strain since the team tumbled into a poor run of form in the final weeks of the season. Redknapp, however, last night said that he has “never had a minute’s problem” with Levy.
