Leeds are destined for a return to the Premier League 'in the next few years', according to Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp.

Harry Redknapp reflects on the FA Cup replay

"We came to Elland Road, probably the first time for some of my players. The atmosphere the fans created was just incredible," Redknapp said. 

"Leeds are a good side and they'll certainly go up this year and I can see them being back in the Premier League in the next few years."

He added: "This is a massive football club. It's really a Premier League club and it needs to get back where it belongs."
