Redknapp, this morning, revealed he'd sat down with the midfielder during the week.
"I had a great chat with Adel. He wants to get fit and back in the team. He's worked very hard in training this week.
"He needs to get fitter and work harder and he's told me he's going to do that. That's all I want.
"Adel will be training with us again this morning and as soon as he's fit, I'm sure he'll be a valuable player for us."
