Redknapp assures Ipswich boss Jewell he doesn't want his job!

Ipswich boss Paul Jewell has revealed Harry Redknapp telephoned to reassure him that he was not interested in his job at Portman Road, reports BBC News. Former Spurs manager Redknapp has been linked with Championship Ipswich after the Suffolk club's poor start to the season.

Jewell told BBC Radio Suffolk: "Harry rang me last Sunday and said there was absolutely no truth in it.

"The only worrying thing was at the end of the conversation he asked me what the best areas to live were."

Jewell continued: "The last time I saw Harry, I was with [Ipswich chairman] Marcus [Evans] in Portugal.

"I said: 'You didn't have to make the phone call, Harry, because if Marcus was going to make a change, I think he'd tell me first' and it was fine."
