Redknapp: We don't want to lose Modric

15th July 2011 - Sigvard Magnus

Tottenham Hotspur football manager Harry Redknapp has stated his intent to keep Luka Modric at White Hart Lane.

Speculation surrounding the midfielder's future has been rife this summer, with Chelsea submitting bids of £22 million and £27 million for his services.

In an interview with BBC Sport, Redknapp said: "We know he wants to leave, whether he writes it down on a piece of paper doesn't really make any difference to our stance.

"He's a great player and we don't want to lose him."

Redknapp also expressed to the news provider his hope that the midfielder will return and be ready for the 2011/2012 Premier League season.

The manager has repeatedly stated his ambition to keep hold of Modric.

In May, Redknapp affirmed that the club has no intentions to sell either Modric or Gareth Bale, as he does not want to weaken his squad ahead of the upcoming season.
