Redknapp cools speculation about England job

6:47 am on 13 March 2012

Tottenham Hotspur's manager Harry Redknapp has distanced himself from the vacant England manager's position, saying he is happy at White Hart Lane and the national job would be too frustrating.

65-year-old Redknapp is the popular choice of both fans and media to lead England at this year's European championship, but he insists he's had no contact with the English FA, who have installed Stuart Pearce as caretaker until they decide on a full-time replacement.

Meanwhile Tottenham are reported to have offered Redknapp an improved contract and a large transfer budget.
