Ex-Spurs star Redknapp fears Conte will quit over zero signings

Former Tottenham midfielder Jamie Redknapp fears manager Antonio Conte will soon walk out on the club.

Since arriving at Spurs in November, Conte has made a major impact in north London, leading his side to 21 points from a possible 30 in the Premier League.

However Tottenham are yet to sign anyone in this month's transfer window, and time is running out for Conte to strengthen his squad.

"He needs players. There must have been an agreement between him and Daniel Levy they'd bring in the players he needs," Redknapp told Sky Sports after Tottenham's 2-0 defeat at Chelsea.

"He's done a great job to get in this position. There's a massive gulf between Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea and the rest you can see it.

"Tottenham are so close to get into the top four, no other manager could have done in this position.

"But he needs backing he needs to get players in.

"Two, three, four players in and he's got nine days in the window to do it. Daniel Levy is a difficult man for managers to deal with.

"If you don't back him (Conte) you look at his history with Inter Milan, I think he'll leave the club because you can't promise and then not deliver.

"Tottenham fans must be so frustrated as everything's great - the stadium, the training ground but the team needs a bit of help right now so give him what he needs."
