Media reports earlier in the week were claiming that the Isreali international midfielder had said that he had been offered the chance to play for his old West Ham manager again but Redknapp has dismissed these claims.

"I saw in the papers that I was supposed to have spoken to Eyal and agreed a deal," Redknapp told the BBC.

"Well that's nonsense. I couldn't have agreed a deal because I've not spoken to Kevin Keegan at Man City and until we did that, you couldn't talk to a player.

"What Man City can pay and what we would pay is a million miles apart unfortunately. But I would have liked him if I could have afforded him.”
