Harry Redknapp has insisted that there are no plans to sell Luka Modric and Gareth Bale.

Modric had been linked with a £25million move to Manchester United, but Redknapp wants the Croatian to remain at the Lane.  Bale has also been said to be catching the eye of Sir Alex Ferguson.

“I do not want to sell Modric or Bale, no way, absolutely no way,” Redknapp told Soccernet. “These young players are the future of the club and we should not be selling our best young players like Modric and Bale.

“If you do, where do you go from there? If you want to progress as a team and as a club you have no chance if you sell players like that.

“We are going places at Spurs, we are looking to build a new stadium, we have a new training ground; the club is looking to go forward.”

Redknapp added: “Modric is world class, I wouldn’t be interested in selling him. Bale is just fantastic young player with such a great future, you would be mad to want to think about selling him.

“In fact, the club will be offering Bale a new contract, he has come on bundles in recent months and deserves it. He is an amazing talent, and a nice lad as well.

“But they are not the only young talents we have, just look at Lennon, what a player he is, and he has been training this week, he was involved last Saturday and we shall have to see if he is ready to start against Bolton on Saturday, he will have a big part to play in our run in for fourth place.”
