Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp admits he fancies a move for Chelsea's Bosman prospect Joe Cole. The Sun says Redknapp faces a battle with North London rivals Arsenal to secure the signature of the Chelsea and England midfielder.
Redknapp said: "We've declared our interest in Joe to his agent but that is as far as it has gone.
"We are told Joe doesn't want to talk to anyone about any move until after the World Cup is over."
Cole, 28, is available on a free transfer after refusing new terms at Stamford Bridge and Redknapp is keen to work with him for a second time.
