Redknapp is accused along with Milan Mandaric, his former chairman at Portsmouth, of concealing $295,000 of transfer bonuses in a Monaco bank account to avoid paying taxes in Britain at times from 2002-08.

The jury of eight men and four women spent almost four hours considering verdicts on Tuesday before leaving for the night.

Redknapp and Mandaric deny two charges of cheating the public revenue.

Redknapp managed Portsmouth, which is now in the second tier, from 2002 to 2004, and returned to Fratton Park in 2005 after a brief spell at its archrival Southampton before moving to Tottenham in 2008.
