White Hart Lane boss wants Anfield midfielder.
Tottenham will revive their interest in Joe Cole just 12 months after he rejected a move to White Hart Lane and completed a free transfer to Liverpool.
Cole’s decision to move to Merseyside has been a disaster as injury and an alarming loss of form has wiped out his campaign.
He will have to lick his wounds and take a substantial pay cut to return to London while Liverpool will demand at least £5million to cover the £100,000 a week they were paying Cole.
Cole has confided to close friends that he may have made a mistake joining Liverpool and would welcome a reunion with Redknapp who previously managed him at West Ham.

There is growing speculation that Harry Redknapp will reunite with former West Ham charge Joe Cole this summer. Liverpool are hoping to secure at least £5m for the England international who only arrived at Anfield last summer. Tottenham would appear to have more than enough options in the positions that the 29 year old plies his trade but apparently the White Hart Lane boss can’t resist the chance to sign a player who a few years ago was considered one of the best Premier League performers.
Cole’s career at Chelsea was greatly hampered by injuries and Carlo Ancelotti didn’t see the attacking midfielder as a first team starter so when his contract ran out at Stamford Bridge he was snapped up by Roy Hodgson but his time at Liverpool started horrendously as he was sent off in the first game of the season against Arsenal and things have steadily got worse from that point on.
Under Kenny Dalglish he has been a constant bench warmer on occasion given five or ten minute run outs at the end of games, he did however net in the recent 5-0 win over Birmingham City but does seem likely to leave the club this summer.
A move to Tottenham would appear to be an exercise in switching one bench for another given that the club has the likes of Gareth Bale, Rafael Van der Vaart, Luka Modric and Aaron Lennon as regular starters and quality players as back ups such as Niko Kranjcar, Steven Pienaar and David Bentley.
Recent good form shown by Maxi, Raul Meireles and Dirk Kuyt has made it even harder for the Londoner to break back into the starting eleven. The likes of Aston Villa and West Ham are also said to be interested.
