Redknapp dismisses reports of Tottenham swapping Modric for Chelsea's Torres

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp cannot take seriously reports of a swap deal involving Fernando Torres trading places with Spurs Luka Modric. "No I have never heard that one," he said when asked about a potential Torres-Modric swap.

"I think Torres is starting to look the player that we all know he can be, the player he was at Liverpool - he is a top player no doubt that about it.

"But there is no way he is coming to Tottenham and no swap deal in the offing for Luka Modric, I think they will get the best out of him."

Meanwhile the Spurs chief remains hopeful that a new deal will be agreed for Modric.

"I don't know where they are but hopefully the chairman will come to agreement and he signs a new contract, he has got a long contract anyway," he said.
