Tottenham boss Redknapp admits almost losing matchwinner Kranjcar in January
The Croatia midfielder struck the winner in victory over Bolton Wanderers.
Redknapp said: "He didn't want to move and I didn't want to push him out.
"Last year he was one of the players of the season. He trains hard, he has a great attitude, he doesn't spit his dummy out when he is not in the side and you need good people. He trains every day of his life as if his life depends on it.
