Harry Redknapp has insisted that Luka Modric will stay at Spurs this summer, with the manager fighting off Chelsea from snaring his No.1 playmaker.

Modric has long been linked with a move to Chelsea, and though the Croatia international has admitted to wanting a move to Stamford Bridge, Redknapp has maintained that Mordic will stay and see out the season at White Hart Lane.

And today Redknapp reiterated these sentiments, as reports go into overdrive over a possible last minute deal.

"Obviously there's been all the talk about Luka but the chairman has held firm and he's not for sale,” Redknapp told Sky Sports.

"So he's not going, which is great. That won't happen, no chance. One million percent - that will not happen."

Redknapp is well known for his last minute deals in the transfer window, and today Gary Cahill emerged as a possible target for Spurs as the side looks to bolster it’s back line.


Cahill has long been a target for Arsenal, and with a reported £17 million release clause in his contract, Redknapp says a deal is on the cards but by no

means finalised.

"I've always been a big admirer of Gary Cahill so we've got to wait and see really," Redknapp said.

"We've got some bits and pieces to do ourselves. So we'll see how the day pans out."

On Scott Parker though, the Spurs manager was much more sure of an agreement being nutted out today, telling reporters: "I'm sure we'll get Scott sorted out."
