Harry Redknapp has admitted he is interested in bringing Joe Cole back to London.
The 29 year old has struggled for form since his Bosman move from Chelsea to Liverpool last summer and has yet to start a game so far this season.
That has led to talk of an early departure from Anfield with QPR also keen to bring the England international back down South.
However Spurs appear to be in the driving seat with Redknapp admitting a liking for the midfielder “”I like Joe, I signed him as an 11-year-old. He is a good player. I’ve got all the time in the world for him. We haven’t made any enquiries about him but I wouldn’t sit here and say I wouldn’t have him at the club because if I did I’d be lying. I do like him.”
