Harry Redknapp insists that Luka Modric will be staying at Tottenham amid reports that the Croatian has submitted a transfer request.
Modric is desperate to move to London rivals Chelsea but Spurs are determined to hold on to their man and have rejected bids of £22million and £27million for the player. Media reports on Thursday morning claimed the 25-year-old has put in a written transfer request to try to force through a move.
"We know he wants to leave and whether he writes it down on a piece of paper doesn't really make any difference to our stance," Redknapp told BBC Sport. "He's a great player and we don't want to lose him."
