Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp says both Jermain Defoe and Luka Modric are staying at the club.

Defoe has seen his opportunities limited with Spurs this season, while Modric had been linked heavily with Chelsea and Manchester United during the summer.

But according to Redknapp two of his prized assts won't be leaving White Hart Lane.

"Luka's future is here," said Redknapp. "No one is for sale. We are keeping our best players and if anything we will be adding to the squad not selling.

"That's the message from me and the chairman [Daniel Levy]. We won't be weakening this squad.

"If one or two positions open up where fringe players want to go then we will look at that but we are not going to sell our best players or anyone we want to keep."

On Defoe, who has expressed his worry over his England place given his limited Spurs appearances, Redknapp said: "His future's here. "We ain't selling any of our best players.

"There's going to be no-one leaving in January that we want to keep, that's for sure.

"If we're going to do anything we'll add to the squad, we won't be weakening it at all. That's the message from both myself and the chairman.

"If people are not in the side I'm sure they're disappointed but we'll need a squad."
