Harry offers Jamie coaching role at Tottenham

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has offered his son Jamie a coaching role at White Hart Lane next season.

Redknapp Jr, the former Spurs midfielder who retired from playing in 2005 due to a knee injury, is a pundit with Sky Sports but that is unlikely to get in the way of spending two days a week coaching.

Former Spurs players Les Ferdinand and Tim Sherwood are already on the coaching staff at the club.

"Next year, I hope Jamie will come in and spend a couple of days a week working with the youth sides, just for the love of it,'' Redknapp said. "He is doing his coaching badges and he would be great with the kids. There are so many former players out there who have so much to offer.

"Tim and Les have done very well since they have been here but clubs do not give those boys a chance. I don't want to lose either of them but if a lower League club were to give them a chance, they would be fantastic.

"It is almost a crime that they are not involved, because there are so many who could do a great job.''

Redknapp Snr's other plans for next season include signing three players to help the club challenge the traditional top four of the Premier League.

"We are short of three quality players to help us close that gap and I know the players I would like,'' Redknapp told the Evening Standard. "Will we be able to get them? I don't know.

"Kenwyne Jones? I was interested in him in the winter but he signed a new contract at Sunderland in January, so I don't think so. But we need to juggle things around.

"We spent big money in January, so it's not just going to be a case of having massive money to spend.

"As the chairman Daniel Levy said, we are going to have to be a bit creative in the transfer market.

"Maybe this year, Arsenal have not quite been at the level of the other three but there is still a gap there between us.''
