Ashley will also:
- Allow Redknapp to commute to work by plane from his beloved South Coast.
- Hand him a transfer war chest to go for men like Spurs' Pascal Chimbonda.
- Pay Pompey £3m compensation.

"He's settled down there. He likes taking his dogs for a walk along the coast. But time will tell, I suppose."
