In his long career as a football manager, Harry Redknapp was no stranger to multi-million-pound transfer deals.
And now he is transferring himself and his wife Sandra into a lavish new home – having made a tidy seven-figure profit on his old one.
The I’m A Celebrity winner is to move into a five-bedroom property in Poole, Dorset, after selling his mansion on ‘millionaires’ row’ in nearby Sandbanks, the most expensive stretch of coastal property in the world.
His stunning seafront mansion there fetched £7 million – twice what he paid for it in 2015.

One friend said: ‘Harry is shrewd with his money. He saw an opportunity to make millions – and he took it.’
Although money was not the only factor: the couple also thought the four-storey property was too big for them.
The profit 73-year-old Harry made will entirely cover the £3.4 million he is paying for the new property, which is still being built.
When finished, it will boast an orangery, gallery and his-and-hers dressing rooms.

And because it’s still under construction, the Redknapps will have a say on the finishing touches to make it their dream home.
The couple, who have appeared on Celebrity Googlebox together after Harry found his second career as a TV star, moved out of their old home last week, and will rent another property until the new one is ready in March.
Harry is no stranger to making money in the property market. In 2015, he sold another mansion in Sandbanks, a five-bedroom harbour-front property, to Topps Tiles tycoon Barry Bester for £6.8 million, a £4 million profit on what he paid for it in 2001.
The couple’s footballer-turned-TV-presenter son Jamie was a regular visitor at the Sandbanks house, along with his children Charley, 16, and Beau, 11.
Their older son Mark also lives nearby with his wife Lucy and five children.
