Birmingham boss Redknapp confirms interest in Ashley Cole

Birmingham sign Angers midfielder Cheikh N'Doye on free transfer

Despite all of Keane, Cole and Downing being over 30, former Spurs boss Redknapp has insisted that they still have something to offer for the Championsip side, reports Sky Sports.

HARRY REDKNAPP has made a sensational move to bring Ashley Cole to Birmingham.

Redknapp confirmed on Saturday that Los Angeles Galaxy full-back Ashley Cole is on his radar, while Stewart Downing and Robbie Keane could also be targets for the experienced boss. "Wage-wise I don't know where we would go with it, I haven't got a clue what he earns, and he belongs to Middlesbrough, but I think they've said he can go on a free, so he's of interest".

Redknapp, who is keen to strengthen his squad ahead of the forthcoming season, believes Cole is the right type of player to give his side a significant boost. You can't beat a bit of quality.

"Ashley Cole, for me, was best left-back in the world a few years ago".

"I know Ashley, he's a great lad and he could certainly play at this level - no problem".

"[Birmingham's interest] hasn't really gone anywhere though".

"We are trying, on Monday I have got a couple of meetings with players".

"People look at them and see how they are, how they train and perform every day, see what has made them great players - and it rubs off". When you have a chance to get someone like him, if he's available, he has to be of interest.

"I am all for having two or three great senior players around if I can find the right ones to come and play in the team".

Those results saw Birmingham finish two points above the drop and Redknapp understandably is seeking to inject experience as they aim to make a Premier League return.
