Redknapp sets sights on trio

Manager Harry Redknapp claims he is just three players away from having a "terrific" Tottenham Hotspur team. Redknapp has managed to transform the north London club from relegation candidates to European qualifiers after taking the reins in October. The former Portsmouth and West Ham United boss has now set his sights on supplementing his squad during the summer. "I really want to try get this club back to how it was, put us back to where we think we should be," said Redknapp. "And, if I can get the three players I want in the summer, I think we will have a terrific team that can really push on next season. "I reckon it will take £30million to get them and I'll have to balance the books by selling four or more." "We have a good squad that can become a terrific squad with the right additions. So, while it might be the end of the season, there's still a definite buzz around the place. "We are building a new stadium, a new training ground, so the club is on the move. And this team can get better and better." Meanwhile, the 62-year manager claims he has no intention of retiring at the moment. He added: "As long as I'm happy and getting good results, I'll keep going. "I mean, what else would I do? What else could I do? "I like the occasional game of golf, walking my dogs on the beach, going out for a meal. "But I've told the chairman, in two years' time we'll have a really terrific team and I want to be here at the helm enjoying it."
