Tottenham ace Jermain Defoe admits he'd be sad if Harry Redknapp left for the England post.

Redknapp is the overwhelming bookmakers' favourite to succeed Capello, and while Spurs forward Defoe admits Redknapp would be a popular choice, he would be sad to see him leave White Hart Lane.

Defoe told BBC Sport: "Everyone wants Harry to be the next England manager.

"He'll never turn round and say 'no I don't want the job', because it's such a big job. We don't want Harry to leave because of what he's achieved."
