Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric, who remains a target for Chelsea, is reportedly still unhappy at White Hart Lane.

A report on Sunday had suggested that Modric was stalling on signing a new deal at the club as he is concerned about the future of manager Harry Redknapp.

The 26-year-old is said to be unwilling to put pen-to-paper on a new deal if the Spurs boss is planning on leaving next summer to become England manager (see below).

But according to the Mail on Sunday, Modric is also unhappy with the training regime at the club, as well as doubting whether Tottenham can compete with Europe's elite.

The playmaker is said to consider Joe Jordan and Kevin Bond's coaching methods old-fashioned, in a development which will once again lead to speculation about a January move to Chelsea.

A source told the newspaper: "It's not about money for Luka at the moment.

"He has just turned 26 and feels time is running out to play at the very top level.

"Spurs have a very good team but Luka has doubts over the way the squad are trained and prepared and whether they can be as successful as Chelsea in the next few years."
