Tottenham are urging Harry Redknapp to commit his future to the club by offering him an improved four-year deal and £50m to spend in the transfer market this summer.

Spurs' hierarchy have become frustrated at the uncertainty over Redknapp's future, with the FA yet to approach the 65-year-old about the England manager's role following Fabio Capello's departure.

It is believed that no contact has been made, either through third parties or intermediaries, to Redknapp as the FA continue to compile a shortlist of candidates to take charge before Euro 2012.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is pressurising Redknapp to sign amid concerns the situation is creating uncertainty, with Tottenham poised to finish in the top four and earn another crack at the Champions League.

Redknapp's contract with Spurs expires at the end of next season and negotiations have begun on a new four-year deal on an increased salary from his present £3m-a-year before bonuses.

But the offer also includes the promise of significant investment in the team regardless of where they finish this season.
