Redknapp could raid Pompey for players

New Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp could be set return to his former club Portsmouth in January when he begins his rebuilding programme. Redknapp intimated he would not hesitate to move for some of his ex-players at Fratton Park should they become available.

He told BBC Radio Five Live: "If Portsmouth want to sell some of their players, there's an open market.

"They've got some fantastic players there, absolutely top, top players, they really have.''

The 61-year-old will continue his rebuilding of the Spurs coaching staff by having further talks with former skipper Tim Sherwood, who has been approached about joining the backroom staff, and Clive Allen.

Redknapp has already installed Kevin Bond, most recently boss of AFC Bournemouth but who worked with him at Portsmouth and Southampton, as his right-hand man.

One more coach will be added to the team and wihile Allen would appear to be in the driving seat as he is already at the club but there is every chance Redknapp will choose a new face.

Sherwood has been sounded out about the role but is mulling over the offer, uncertain if he wants to give up his media work at this stage.

Redknapp said: "Kevin is my assistant and I'm delighted to have him with me but he's a terrific coach so I'm well pleased.

"Tim would never let you down. He's got a fantastic knowledge of the game, he's played for me and captained Blackburn to the title - he would make a great coach and needs to give it a go now.

"I think he's a bit worried about what's involved - but he needs to take the gamble.

"I've known Clive for a long time. He's a legend at Tottenham and his dad was as well - and he's a terrific coach. I want him with me. He knows the game and he was a big help on Sunday.''
