Kerslake moved on to Leeds United, for only 3 months in which he made 8 appearances before moving to Tottenham Hotspur. Spurs paid £450,000 for Kerslake, however he only made 34 appearances in 4 years for them. He was sent on loan to Swindon and Charlton Athletic, before being released whereupon he joined Ipswich Town in 1997.
Again he only made a handful of appearances for Ipswich, moving on to Wycombe Wanderers and then finishing his career back at Swindon.
He moved later into coaching becoming a coach under former Swindon teammate Colin Calderwood at Nottingham Forest before leaving the club when Calderwood was sacked in December 2008. He was first team coach at Watford but on 30 June 2011 was announced the new coach of Cardiff City working under Malky Mackay but this time as assistant manager. Following the sacking of Mackay in December 2013, Kerslake with Joe McBride, were placed in charge of the first-team. They were in charge until 2 January 2014, when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed as the new Cardiff City manager.
