Harry defiant over Modric stay
Modric is desperate to move to London rivals Chelsea but Spurs are determined to hold on to their man and have rejected bids of £22million and £27million for the player. Media reports this morning claim the 25-year-old has put in a written transfer request to try to force through a move, but Redknapp insists any such move would have no change on the club's stance that he is not for sale. Redknapp told BBC Sport: "We know he wants to leave and 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."
