QPR boss Harry Redknapp has been gagged from spilling the beans on his controversial departure from Tottenham.

The Sunday Mirror says he was ready to lift the lid on his days at White Hart Lane in his autobiography that is due to be released by Ebury Press next month.

Redknapp's shock departure, shortly after being overlooked by the FA to replace Fabio Capello as England boss, stunned football.

But Redknapp is bound by a legal contract drawn up by Tottenham that prevents him going into detail about his departure.

His publishers' lawyers have been poring over the book which covers his reign at West Ham, Portsmouth, Southampton and Tottenham.
