No new Spurs deal on the table -- Redknapp

Harry Redknapp insists he has not been offered a new contract at Tottenham Hotspur.

Redknapp is the odds-on favourite to become next England manager, but having transformed Tottenham from relegation candidates into a side capable of challenging for the Premier League title, chairman Daniel Levy is keen to keep the 65-year-old.

Despite admitting the England job would be the "ultimate" job, Redknapp concedes that it would be difficult to leave Spurs since taking over in 2008.

His contract expires next year and reports have suggested that Levy had offered Redknapp a bumper new pay deal and a hefty transfer kitty this summer in an attempt to make him stay, but the former West Ham manager said: "That's not the case. I speak to Daniel every day and he wants me to stay, which is fantastic, but at the moment he has not made me a contract offer, and I haven't pushed for one either."

Tottenham have become frustrated at other managers tipping Redknapp to take over the England job and asked the Premier League to intervene.

The league responded by circulating a letter to all managers reminding them that they cannot talk about managers or players moving to another club while they are under contract.
