The Kiwi is set to leave the club to manage Toronto FC in the MLS but the west Londoners and the Canadian side are at odds over a departure date.

“I’m hoping he will be available for us for next week so we’ll see about what happens,” Redknapp explained.

Bobby Zamora was on the bench for the 4-2 defeat to MK Dons although Redknapp was unwilling to risk him and he admitted that a return to full fitness for the striker is some way off.

“Bobby is miles away from fitness still,” he added. “You can’t rely on him yet.

“He’s capable of 15-20 minutes maximum so the doctors told me.

“Players will come back on Tuesday and Saturday in the Premier League and that will be the priority.”
