London - Tottenham Hotspur have extended manager Harry Redknapp's contract until 2013, the Premier League club said in a statement on Tuesday.

Spurs, who made the announcement on their website (www.tottenhamhotspur.com), finished fourth in the league in 2009-10 in Redknapp's first full season in charge.

The north Londoners' highest finish since the Premier League came into existence enabled them to book a place in the Champions League qualifiers for the first time.

The campaign was a triumph for Redknapp, who has transformed the club's fortunes since he took over in October 2008 with Spurs bottom of the league after their worst start to a season.
