Spurs head a six-strong list of clubs who have made enquiries about Wes Brown.
The Manchester United defender will be made available in the current transfer window, and Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is keen on bringing the England international’s experience to White Hart Lane.
Redknapp has already made an enquiry about Everton defender Phil Neville, but after getting a firm no from Goodison, he has switched his sights to Brown in the search for an old head to help guide his young squad.
Brown, now 32, has started just five games this season – and two of those were in the Carling Cup – after falling out of favour with boss Sir Alex Ferguson in pre-season, and it seems his Old Trafford days are numbered.
Incredibly, Brown’s only Premier League start came in November against Wolves, and a disastrous appearance in United’s only defeat so far this season, at West Ham in the Carling Cup, appears to have sealed his fate.
Tottenham have made an enquiry about a permanent deal of around £2million, but they are not alone in the pursuit of the top-class defender, who can play either centre-half or right-back.
Everton, Sunderland, Newcastle, Birmingham and Blackburn have all shown an interest in either a permanent deal or a loan agreement until the end of the season.

Whatever people may think about Wes Brown’s abilities as a footballer it is worth noting that Sir Alex Ferguson wouldn’t select any player over 300 time unless he was a cut above the norm. The adaptable defender is much maligned outside Old Trafford but Harry Redknapp clearly sees something he likes and the 31 year old England international is on his radar.
The White Hart Lane boss is looking for further defensive options and Brown’s ability to play as a full back as well as at the centre of defence makes him a very good signing indeed. Man United are reportedly willing to allow Brown to leave for around £2m which would be an absolute bargain.
The player himself is in need of first team football and would surely be tempted by a move to the North London club where he could begin a new challenge after winning the lot with Man United.
