Redknapp wants market value

Harry Redknapp has no intention of letting David Bentley or Roman Pavlyuchenko leave Tottenham Hotspur for anything less than their market value. Neither midfielder Bentley or Russia striker Pavlyuchenko - who cost a combined £28million - is considered a first-team regular at White Hart Lane. But despite conceding that both players are unsettled at the north London club, the Spurs boss will not let either leave for a knock-down price. "David would like to move, there is no doubt about that," said Redknapp of the former Arsenal and Blackburn Rovers midfielder who joined Spurs in July 2008 for £15million. "He feels he needs to move on and play." Speaking about £13million Russia striker Pavlyuchenko who remains out in the cold, Redknapp added: "Obviously Pav wants to move but we are not mad to sell them. "They are not going cheap and are both good players. "It is up to the chairman and whether he gets the money and it is the right offer. I would not let them go cheaper. Otherwise you end up giving them all away. "I won't let my emotions get in the way of the fee we get for Pav and Bentley."
