Harry Redknapp has claimed he has had "loads of offers from abroad" but suggested that he is likely to wait for an offer from the Premier League to come his way.

Redknapp was sacked by Tottenham this summer, with the club stating a desire to head in a new direction despite finishing fourth in the Premier League.

He was overlooked for the England job, with the FA favouring Roy Hodgson, and his options are limited at present. Redknapp claims he is in no rush with regard to his next job, but feels he has the ability to take charge of a top-level club.

"I've had loads of offers from abroad," Redknapp told Sky Sports News. "I am not going to dive in and take the first job that comes up. If I am going to take a job, it will have to be a good job. Otherwise I will take my time and see where I want to go."

A move to the Middle East does not seem to appeal to Redknapp, who said: "I am sure my missus would love that! We are happy living where we live."

Having battled towards the top of the table in the past four years, Redknapp wants another shot at a major club.

"I could manage anywhere, no doubt," he said. "I have not lost faith in my ability. I have left Tottenham in an unbelievable position. When I went to the club to where they are now, it could not have gone better in four fantastic years. I have no doubt about my ability to manage at the top level.

"It [Premier League] is the only place to manage, but you never know what might come up. We will wait and see. If nothing comes up, we will see where we go from there."
