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.

Next season will see spurs enter into the unknown, not only will we have to compete in 3 domestic competitions but will also have to juggle a Champions League campaign too. If we are being realistic, what can we hope to achieve next season?

Firstly the aim will no doubt be to finish in the top 4 again to keep the fans and players happy and to also balance the books. With the plans of a new stadium this is essential. Another aim will be to have a good run in the Champions League as this is our first time in Europe’s elite cup since its rebranding to the CL. I don’t think we will do a Leeds and reach the semi finals but I would consider it a good pop at it if we managed to get through the groups. But before all this we have the little matter of a qualifying game to overcome. If our league form is going well again next season I would suggest the Carling cup will be used for some of the youngsters to get a game, and why not? evey other top 4 club does it. As for the FA cup i’m sure Harry will do his best to win that.

Now our chances of having a good season next campaign will probably depends a lot on how we push on in the summer transfer window, who will come and who will go?. Well it’s nice for a change to be linked with some real big names and know there is a real possiblity of attracting these players now. One name that keeps popping up is Joe Cole on a Bosman and this would be a great addition. Harry should have sufficient funds to spend and can raise even more with the expected sales of Keane,O’hara,Dos Santos and Jenas which could raise over £20mil extra to add to the fund. So for all us Tottenham fans it promises to be an exciting summer. However we have already made the most significant signing of the transfer window by Modric extending his stay for a further 6 years.
So who knows what the 2010/11 season will hold, let’s just hope for once we can deliver and push on and finally live up the the expectations that we have never lived up to. Is this just a flash in the pan or are the sleeping giants finally awakening? I know one thing for certain, Arsenal are definately looking over their shoulder now.
