Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has assured Kevin-Prince Boateng he has a future at White Hart Lane.
The Germany Under 21 international was frozen out of things at Tottenham under former boss Juande Ramos and was not even given a squad number.
Boateng was strongly linked with a move away from Tottenham after not being involved in Ramos' plans.
However, Redknapp has given the whole squad a fresh chance to impress and Boateng has caught the eye of the Spurs chief.
"I think he has got a big future," Redknapp said. "I've been impressed with him.
"He's a Germany Under 21 international and voted the best young German player a couple of years ago.
"He's 6ft 1in and you have to get the best out of him. If we don't, there is something wrong with us.
"The coaches won't be doing their jobs if they don't make a player out of him."
