Sacked Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp could field an approach from Besiktas in the coming days.

The Mirror says Besiktas are believed to be keen to appoint a British manager and are willing to pay big money to get their man.

They have already sounded out Alex McLeish and Steve Bruce, but ­Redknapp would be seen as a major coup.

With no obvious route back into the Premier League, Redknapp may now be prepared to move abroad to keep working.
