Tottenham in advanced talks for Liverpool midfielder Cole
The Mail on Sunday says Cole is heading to Tottenham in a £3m deal after a year of disappointment at Anfield.
Spurs will give him a full medical assessment this week before finalising the move after a season wrecked by injury and lack of form.
Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp, who helped bring Cole through at West Ham, believes he can resurrect the career of the 29-year-old, once regarded as the finest young talent of his generation.
But the move follows a huge fall from grace for the one-time England playmaker, who was widely accepted as the free transfer of the summer last year when he made his switch from Chelsea.
