The Israel defender earned a reputation as one of the best central defenders in England during his time under Sam Allardyce at Bolton Wanderers.

A move to Chelsea was a huge disappointment and he moved on to Manchester City in the summer for £5million, but again he has failed to impress.

Reports now claim that Harry Redknapp is set to join Blackburn Rovers in the chase to sign Ben Haim for £3million, although he is unlikely to match his £45,000-per-week Eastlands wage. (

Many Man City fans deride Tal Ben Haim who always seems dodgy when I have seen him play since his heyday at Bolton and if Harry does make the move for the Israeli I for one will be dumfounded. Tottenham obviously need a few defenders, especially centre backs, but would the former Chelsea man be a good signing? He is average at best and wouldn’t cost much but I do not see him as good enough to play at any club other than one who is expected to struggle with relegation and clearly Spurs are aiming higher than that. Are there any White Hart Lane fans who think this move would be one worth making?
