The speculation continues that Tottenham Hotspur could be about to part company with their manager Harry Redknapp. Newspapers have claimed that he will have a meeting today with the Spurs chairman Daniel Levy today to discuss his future. Levy is reported not to want to extend Redknapp's contract after the club failed to qualify for next season's Champions League.

"It is not true, there is not a chance I will resign. Why should I? I have a year left on my contract."

Redknapp has angrily attacked rumours that he had already quit, telling ESPN: "No, I haven't resigned, and I have no idea why it is being suggested that I have resigned. This is an outrage; an absolute liberty for people to be putting around this kind of rumour on the internet. It is not true, there is not a chance I will resign. Why should I? I have a year left on my contract."

Redknapp took over at White Hart Lane in 2008 with the club facing relegation. He turned things around and got them into the Champions League where they reached the quarter-finals in 2011. He was expected to take over as England manager following Fabio Capello's departure but the job instead went to Roy Hodgson.

This season, Spurs finished fourth in the table - however, that was not enough to get them back in the Champions League after Chelsea took their place by winning the competition.
