Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that manager Harry Redknapp will be leaving the club.

Speculation has been rife in recent weeks that Redknapp could be set to leave his post as Spurs boss, with a dispute over a contract extension thought to be the cause of tension within the club.

The 65-year-old has only one year left on his current contract and is thought to want a long-term deal. However, chairman Daniel Levy is believed to have only offered a one-year extension.

The two men held talks yesterday and following that meeting it has been decided Redknapp will leave the club. A statement on TottenhamHotspur.com confirmed the news with Levy thanking Redknapp for his contributions at White Hart Lane.

Redknapp also said he’s enjoyed his four years at the club and is proud of his achievements, before thanking the fans for their support:

The Club can today announce that Harry Redknapp will be leaving his post as manager.

Chairman Daniel Levy commented, “This is not a decision the Board and I have taken lightly. Harry arrived at the Club at a time when his experience and approach was exactly what was needed. This decision in no way detracts from the excellent work Harry has done during his time with the Club and I should like to thank him for his achievements and contribution. Harry will always be welcome at the Lane.”

Harry said, “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Spurs and am proud of my achievements. I have had a fantastic four years with the Club, at times the football has been breathtaking. I am sad to be leaving but wish to thank the players, staff and fans for their terrific support during my time there.”

Everton boss David Moyes is the bookies favourite to take up the helm at the Lane.
