Having masterminded a superb escape from relegation, Redknapp wants to try and ensure that next season sees the club challenge higher up in the Premiership.

Redknapp said ‘I’ll be going to France and possibly Italy next week to look at the last few games there and see who is around and available,’ Redknapp admitted.

‘I’m a bit behind some of other English club managers in drawing up plans, because when you are not sure what division you are going to be in it is difficult to get sign players.
