Tottenham are weighing up a shock move to bring Paul Robinson back to White Hart Lane, skysports.com understands.
Robinson, who left Spurs for Blackburn in the summer of 2008, has been in superb form for Rovers this season and has played a key role in helping them to seventh spot in the Premier League.
The 31-year-old’s performances have not gone unnoticed by former club Spurs with Harry Redknapp still unsure over his goalkeeping options at the club.
Heurelho Gomes is currently No.1 at White Hart Lane, but it has been suggested Redknapp is yet to be fully convinced the Brazilian is the long-term solution between the sticks.
Carlo Cudicini is out of contract at the end of the season and he could leave the club after failing to establish himself in the side.
Tottenham are thought to be monitoring Robinson’s situation at Blackburn with the shot-stopper recapturing the form that made him England’s No.1 keeper.

Would Paul Robinson want to return to Tottenham? Is the England international perhaps happier to be the proverbial big fish in a smaller pond? It seems it would be a tough decision for the former Leeds United man to make to return to White Hart Lane as he would clearly not be guaranteed first team football and that is something he has grown accustomed to at Ewood Park where he has missed just eight Premier League matches in two and a half seasons.
The 31 year old may of course be tempted by the allure of a top four chase and the chance to pit his wits in the Champions League but it would in many ways be a brave decision to return to the North London club and perhaps if Blackburn Rovers weren’t flying high in seventh place then maybe he would consider it but I find it more likely that Robinson will stick it out at the Lancashire club who appear to be going places.
