Harry Redknapp has revealed his delight after Luka Modric pledged his future to Tottenham by penning a new deal. The Croatian midfielder has been strongly linked with a move away from the club with Manchester United known to be keen but he has now ended all the speculation by penning a contract. Redknapp never had any doubt about the 24-year-old’s future and has also paid tribute to chairman Daniel Levy for securing the deal. “He has always been happy at the club. He is a fantastic player, he is a great lad,” he told Sky Sports News. “He comes in every day and trains hard, works hard. He is low maintenance. “To have him tied up for six years, the chairman has done a marvellous job in doing that deal with him. He [Modric] could play in any team in the world in my opinion and you have got to keep your best players.
