Tottenham defender Ryan Nelsen is eyeing a return to MLS.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is planning on a summer overhaul and Nelsen is set to be released, with Ajax's Jan Vertonghen close to agreeing a deal to move to White Hart Lane.

Nelsen, 34, spent four years at DC United before leaving them for Blackburn in 2005 and it is understood the club, along with other MLS sides, are keen on offering him a deal.
