Harry Redknapp has drawn a line under the Assou-Ekotto incident and says he will not be taking any further action against the defender.

Assou-Ekotto was involved in a confrontation with a fan after the 1-0 home defeat to Wolves and had to be pulled away from it by Joe Jordan.

Spurs have organised for the Cameroon international to meet the fan, who is believed to be Norwegian, in order to sort out any issues.

The police are no longer involved after the fan withdrew his complaint and Redknapp has stated he will not be issuing a fine and wants an end to the matter.

“There won’t be any punishment.

“Joe was there and he said it was nothing. This guy came over, he was foreign. He said something to benoit and Benoit reacted to it.

“Whatever he said, that was it and there was no violence or anything.

“Joe pulled him away and his girlfriend pulled the other guy away, whoever he was.”
