Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has hailed to impact of manager Harry Redknapp on the club's season. Redknapp arrived at White Hart Lane in late October with Spurs bottom of the Premier League table, but the north London club could yet finish the campaign by qualifying for Europe. Levy said: "While it was undoubtedly the more difficult option at the time, I am delighted that the changes have proved to have been the correct ones and that we have been able to enjoy a positive ending to our season. "It has been a terrific team effort led by Harry Redknapp and I am extremely grateful for the drive and determination of all concerned to effect this turnaround." Meanwhile, Redknapp says he would be happy to see defender Ledley King called up for England's upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Kazakhstan and Andorra. King is playing on despite chronic knee problems, but Redknapp told The Sun: "I'd love to see Ledley play in the next two England games, I'd be behind it 100 per cent. "These next two games are in June so there would be no problem. It's only in the season where he has to be nursed along."
