Tottenham reward Redknapp with new deal

Tottenham Hotspur FC have handed a contract extension to manager Harry Redknapp ahead of their UEFA Champions League debut next month, tying the 63-year-old to the club until 2013.

Manager Harry Redknapp has signed a contract extension with UEFA Champions League contenders Tottenham Hotspur FC which ties him to the club until 2013.

Redknapp took over at Tottenham in October 2008, subsequently steering the north London side clear of relegation before guiding them to their best Premier League finish of fourth last season. That performance not only earned the 63-year-old the Premier League's manager of the year award, but also secured his club a place in the UEFA Champions League for the first time.

Redknapp's deal was due to expire next year, but Tottenham have now exercised the option of lengthening his stay at White Hart Lane by a further two seasons. "The club is delighted to announce we have extended the contract of manager Harry Redknapp until 2013," read a statement. Tottenham will line up in the UEFA Champions League play-offs on 17/18 August with the return ties the following week; the draw takes place on 6 August.
