Well as I predicted in a recent post here it looks like the 2 unlucky Spurs players to miss out were in fact Dawson and Huddlestone. It looks as though Capello has opted for experience over form,as Upson and Carragher made it into the squad over Dawson despite Dawson having a better season. Carrick made it in over Huddlestone, despite Huddlestone having a better season.

Other players to miss out were Theo Walcott, Darren Bent, Scott Parker, Adam Johnson and suprisingly Leighton Baines.

Tottenham will still have 4 players representing them in the England team in Defoe,King,Lennon and Crouch. There were doubts over King would make the cut due to his fitness but personally I dont think his place was ever in question, every England manager has noticed the talents of Ledley and worked hard to get him into the England set up and when he has played he never let them down. For the likes of Huddlestone and Dawson, maybe not this time but i’m sure they have plenty of caps to come in the future.

Well it seems that Luka Modric will not be leaving, we know the big clubs want him but they can only offer him the same as us now which is champions league football.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has quashed talk that he will sell playmaker Luka Modric, stressing that the Croatian is not for sale.

Modric has been linked with a £25 million move to Manchester United following a successful campaign with Spurs, helping them qualify for the Champions League.

Redknapp is looking to challenge at the top of the Premier league and in Europe next term, and is therefore not interested in allowing one of his most influential players to depart White Hart Lane this summer.

He said in The Sun: “There’s no chance of it happening at all. Luka’s key to everything that’s happening at this place.

“Everybody knows what I think of him. And if you want to move on to higher levels you don’t start flogging off your best players – to anyone.

“I have an excellent squad and – I stress – Luka Modric is going to remain a part of it.”

Redknapp is determined not to lose another of his stars to United following the departures of Michael Carrick and Dimitar Berbatov to the Red Devils in recent seasons.

It has been suggested that Spurs are also interested in Manchester City’s Stephen Ireland and Bolton defender Gary Cahill, but Redknapp denied the reports.

The club has also been linked with a move for Aston Villa defender Curtis Davies after Martin O’Neill claimed he is open to talks over the 25-year-olds future.
