Bournemouth say they'd welcome back sacked Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp.

Redknapp managed Bournemouth for nine years between 1983 and 1992, during which time he guided the club to a famous FA Cup victory over Manchester United.

"We would welcome Harry with open arms - he has a huge amount of experience," said Cherries chairman Eddie Mitchell. "If there was ever a chance of bringing him back we would jump at it.

"It doesn't mean he would have to work in the management side of things, he is a good character to have around in general."
