Tottenham Hotspur manger Harry Redknapp has rubbished talk that he's in talks over a new contract at White Hart Lane.

With Redknapp hotly tipped to succeed Fabio Capello as England manager, Tottenham were reportedly eager to tie him down to a new deal to warn off interest from The Football Association.

However, the 65-year-old has rejected claims he is in talks to extend his deal, despite maintaining he's happy with the north Londoners.

"I speak to Daniel every day and we've discussed he wants me to stay at the club, which is fantastic, but he's not made me an offer of a contract at the moment," said Redknapp.

"I've not pushed him to either, and we've never discussed about spending money in the summer or amounts of money to spend, it's never come up in conversation at all."

Redknapp's Spurs travel to Goodison Park to take on Everton, whose manager David Moyes celebrates 10 years at the helm with the Toffees. And the Tottenham boss is keen to pay tribute to the Scot, who he believes has done a fantastic job on Merseyside since taking charge back in 2002.

"He's done a fantastic job at Everton," added Redknapp.

"It's a big club Everton, but David could manage at any level for sure, he could manage anywhere given the opportunity.

"But Everton is certainly not a small club. He's got a top chairman there, I think Bill Kenwright's a great guy as well. They've been good for each other. David's done fantastic for Bill and Bill's been a good chairman as well.

"You like to see people stay at clubs long term like that, it's great for the game."

Redknapp will be without defender Michael Dawson and winger Aaron Lennon for the trip to Everton, but veteran defender William Gallas will return to action after being out since January.

Dawson was taken off against Stevenage in mid-week, and has seen his season cut short again, after an Achilles injury disrupted his early season progress.

"It's such bad luck for him, he's fantastic player and a great guy, a real professional," said Redknapp. "It's a big loss for us.

"William should be okay, he's had calf injuries all season but hopefully he's back to fitness now. Ryan Nelsen came through the other night, I was pleased with him and we've got Younes and Ledley, hopefully we can keep Ledley fit.

"Aaron Lennon picked up a hamstring injury against Stevenage, he's not available. He shouldn't be out long. He's going for a scan today (Friday), but he doesn't feel too bad."
