Spurs chairman heaps praise on Redknapp

Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has saluted the job Harry Redknapp has done turning around the fortunes of the club this season.

Redknapp arrived at White Hart Lane seven months ago with Spurs bottom of the Barclays Premier League, but they head into the final week of the campaign with an outside chance of Europa League qualification.

Joe Lewis, the man behind ENIC, who control Spurs, made a rare appearance at the club's home when he watched the win over Manchester City last weekend, a victory that kept Redknapp's men in the hunt for a seventh-place finish.

''Whilst it was undoubtedly the more difficult option at the time, I am delighted that the changes have proved to have been the correct ones and that we have been able to enjoy a positive ending to our season,'' Levy said.

''It has been a terrific team effort led by Harry Redknapp and I am extremely grateful for the drive and determination of all concerned to effect this turnaround.''

Levy and Redknapp are planning to sell players in the summer to raise the money for three additions the Spurs boss feels will make the difference to his side.

''We need to sell one or two, in his (Levy's) words, be creative in the transfer market in the summer,'' Redknapp said.

Juventus striker Vincenzo Iaquinta has been linked with Spurs in Italy, while Wolfsburg forward Edin Dzeko has emerged as a possible target but has been quoted insisting he would prefer a move to Serie A.

Roman Pavlyuchenko has been tipped as a possible departure but explained to Redknapp that playing in the Russian league before joining Spurs means he has not had a proper break.

''We had a good talk,'' Pavlyuchenko told Sport Express. ''Redknapp said that he understood it was impossible to go through such a long season as mine without a drop in form.''

''He said that he was relying on me, and that I had to score 20 goals next season. I told him 'no problem'.''

Meanwhile, reports in China claim Tottenham will join West Ham and Hull in the Premier League Asia Trophy in Beijing from July 29 to August 1.
