Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is eager to sort out his future and sign a new contract with the White Hart Lane club.
The 65-year-old took over at the Premier League side in 2008 but has just one year left on his existing deal.
Redknapp believes it could prove detrimental to put off contract talks and is eager to extend his stay in north London.
“The simple situation is that I have a year left on my contract and it is up to Tottenham whether they want to extend that or not,” Redknapp told Sky Sports.
“Things couldn’t have gone better since I’ve been there. We’ve finished fourth twice, fifth once, quarter-finals of the Champions League and played fantastic football. It’s a good club and I enjoy being at Tottenham.
“It’s not a case of me looking for security. What it’s about, really, is that when players know they have only a year left on their contract it doesn’t work.
“You don’t let players run into the last year of their contract if you think they are any good and you don’t let managers run into the last year of their contract if you think they are any good. That is the situation so it is up to the club.”
Redknapp also downplayed speculation linking him with a potential move to Qatar, adding: “No. I don’t speak to anybody else, it’s not my job. I am under contract at Tottenham. I keep seeing something about Qatar but I’ve never been to Qatar in my life.
“I love it at Tottenham. I’ve got a good team and good players. It is up to the chairman. If he doesn’t want to give me another contract, it is his decision. We’ll see what happens.”
