Brendan Rodgers has jumped to the front of the queue of managers Tottenham will turn to if Harry Redknapp becomes the next England boss, reports the Daily Express.

Having guided Swansea to 10th place by playing some of the most attractive football in the Premier League, the Northern Irishman's reputation seems to be growing by the day.

Rodgers will arrive at White Hart Lane this weekend when his side from South Wales visit north London to face Spurs in the league on Sunday.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is still determined to retain the services of Redknapp, and is willing to offer him a bumper new contract with a £60million transfer kitty to strengthen his squad in the summer.

However, there is a growing feeling that the 65-year-old will find the Football Association's job offer too good to turn down, especially with the prospect of taking England to Euro 2012 this June.

Jose Mourinho would be Spurs fans' first-choice replacement, but with the club reluctant to meet his £11million-a-year wage demands, are likely to favour a more astute appointment.

Everton manager David Moyes has been touted, but Rodgers has now usurped him and could be approached by Tottenham at the end of the season.
