The 35-year-old centre-back has been outstanding for the Premier League's bottom side since arriving in the summer but the New Zealand international has been linked with a player coaching job at Toronto FC in Major League Soccer.

And Redknapp said: "There is some truth in the rumour I'm afraid. Nelsen is very important to us, a fantastic leader and a top player, but he has been offered a job in America and I think there is every chance he might want to go.

"He wants to be a manager and it is a chance for him to manage a club.

"He has been fantastic. I took him to Tottenham last year from Blackburn and he's one of the best pros I've ever met in my life, a fantastic player, a great trainer, a leader. He is a massive part of your team and to lose him would be a massive blow for us."

Nelsen is in the middle of a one-year contract and Redknapp added: "I'll have to speak to the owner to see what the situation is with that. We'll try (to keep him) but it is difficult."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
