Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has played down talk of a reunion with his former West Ham United stars Joe Cole and Michael Carrick.

Chelsea winger Joe Cole and Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick have been linked with Spurs since their Champions League qualification.

But Redknapp said: "I have never discussed Joe with anybody.

"I signed Joe as an 11-year-old and I know him better than anybody.

"He's a fantastic player but he belongs to Chelsea and there's every chance he'll want to stay at Chelsea."

He added: "Michael's also a top player.

"I signed him when he was 12. I know all about him as well. Will he want to leave Man United? I wouldn't have thought so."
