The Spurs boss will need to wheel and deal to raise the money to buy the three new players he wants for next season.
And Redknapp admitted he wanted �15m England midfielder Bentley out after preferring to use striker Robbie Keane in midfield despite the absence of the injured Aaron Lennon.
“David is obviously going to be a player whose going to look at it and think, well, hang on here, I'm not getting in the team, even when Aaron Lennon's not fit and maybe it's time I moved on, or something,” said the Spurs boss.
“We haven't got a bottomless pit and we need to balance the books, sell one or two and in his words be creative in the transfer market. I know three players I really want to bring in and if I could get them then we will be very strong next year. But we need to sell a couple of players and move a couple on.”
Russian striker Pavlyuchenko infuriated Redknapp by ignoring his handshake and running straight down the tunnel after being subbed in the second half.

“I don't like that,” added Redknapp, who gave the Russian sarcastic applause from the bench. “It's not something that I like, you're looking to scrap away, the fans are here, they pay their money to watch and I think when a player runs down the tunnel without sitting there and watching his team, getting behind his team, I think it's disrespectful to his team-mates and I don't like it.”
