Redknapp happy with squad

Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp insists he is not 'desperate' to offload any of his players, but may be prepared to sell to fund his own transfer plans. David Bentley has been linked with a move away from White Hart Lane in the summer after struggling to make an impact since Redknapp took charge. Redknapp hinted earlier in the week that the midfielder may be considering his future at Spurs, less than 12 months after arriving from Blackburn Rovers. However, Redknapp has not discussed possible exits with any of his players and is happy with the options he currently has at his disposal. "I don't go and persuade anyone that their futures are here, we just get on with it," said Redknapp on Sky Sports News. "They're here, they've all got contracts and it's up to them to prove they're worth keeping, that's as simple as it is. "I don't have to go round saying 'we want to keep you' and 'we want to keep you'. There's no-one I'm desperate to see the back of, none of them, they're a good group of lads. "If good offers come in for one or two players, and it means me getting a couple of players in I feel will improve us, that's the way we'll look to go." Spurs have been linked with a bid for Glen Johnson, who Redknapp signed during his time in charge at Portsmouth, but the Tottenham boss did not want to divulge the identities of his summer targets. He added: "They belong to other clubs and I don't want to go down the road of discussing players at other clubs at this stage because it causes nothing but problems for yourself. "We'll keep our targets to ourselves. The chairman will work in the summer to try and get one or two targets in that we've identified. "In an ideal world you'd want to produce them without telling the whole world who you're signing."
