Redknapp to offer new contract to Modric

Modric has been linked with a move to Chelsea and seems to want to leave, something Redknapp seemed to be open to earlier this week.

But he said: “The chairman has to sit down with him and have a chat. They fell out a bit over the first meeting. Daniel needs to tell him we want him, that he’s important and a big player for us. We’ll bring in players and if we show him we are an ambitious club you might find the boy will be OK. He’s told me he will look at his contract in a month or two and said he’s not going. It will be difficult for him to go back on that.”
