Reports are suggesting that Chelsea midfielder Joe Cole would defect to Tottenham if given the opportunity.

The Sun revealed that the 28-year old England international would turn down a lucrative offer to join Liverpool so he can link up with his old West Ham boss Harry Redknapp at White Hart Lane.

Spurs would have to come up with £100,00 a week in wages for Cole which could be a problem but the fact that Redknapp knows Cole’s game inside-out could be a determining factor.
