thumbnail Hello,

Tottenham's manager is sharpening his axe as he prepares to fund his summer spending.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp is set to kick-start an incredible summer exodus from White Hart Lane.

Reports in several British papers, including The Sun and The Daily Mail, suggest Redknapp is set to cut an extraordinary number of players - up to 14 - as he aims to remodel his squad.

The Tottenham manager has already released Portuguese defender Ricardo Rocha and will listen to offers for many of his first team squad members.

Redknapp is keen to sell in order to fund moves for Roque Santa Cruz, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Edin Dzeko.

High profile names on the exit list include Jermaine Jenas, David Bentley, Darren Bent, Roman Pavlyuchenko, Didier Zokora and Gareth Bale.

Spurs have spent £180 million on transfers since 2007, and despite recouping around £95 million in sales, will need to offset any transfer moves this summer.
