Following his renewed optimism on the possibility of Joe Cole joining us, Redknapp sets his sights on another former West Ham man ….

Redknapp wants to reunite Carrick with old team mate Cole at the Lane.

After his U-turn over the chances of us seeing Joe Cole in a Tottenham shirt yesterday, Harry Redknapp has renewed his interest in the possibility of reuniting Cole with former West Ham teammate Michael Carrick.

Former Spurs midfielder Carrick, 28,has seen his opportunities at Old Trafford become fewer and farther between recently and was mooted to be part of a swap deal being readied by Sir Alex Ferguson earlier in the season for Croatian international Luka Modric.

That possibility was quickly shot down by Spurs who moved to secure Modric on a new and improved 6 year contract, running until the end of the 2016 season.

Now however, it is believed that the United boss will consider letting England international Carrick leave the club if a suitable offer is received.

With Harry a known admirer of the geordie midfield man, it is now believed that he is ready to test the water with United, with a £12m bid for his former charge.

Should the bid be accepted, you would imagine that Carrick would seriously consider a switch back to N17, especially now that we have Champions League football to come at the Lane next season. The thought of seeing Cole and Carrick sharing the centre of the park on the same side once again would certainly be interesting and the United man’s range of passing would certainly compliment the abilities of Luka Modric . One other thing to consider however, is that with Sandro coming in aswell if Harry were to get the cheque book out for Carrick, would that mean the end for Wilson Palacios? With the Honduran already having been linked with a move to Spain with Barca, could he be the man to make way for another midfield arrival?

  1. West Ham fan here in peace (probably the first). But surely Carrick would be a step backwards for you guys. Palacios has been immense for you and doesnt need replacing.

    He’d be a good squad edition especially considering the increase of fixtures you face but at the moment he’d struggle to get in your first 11.

    Joe Cole would be good for you. You have a very good first 11, going to be tough to sign world class players but where you are at the moment thats the only way you can progress.

  2. Yes, let’s sign that Judas, along with Berbatov and Campbell

  3. I agree Chris, and you are right …… you are the first ! I wouldn’t be overly excited to see Carrick back in a Spurs shirt, but Harry knows what he’s doing and if Palacios was to leave I think that would be the reason we signed Carrick and not the other way round.

  4. does arry know what he is doing remember james/gomaz arry sulking done same bale ,pav,ekotto,bently,hudd,depends who he is favourite at the time

  5. Chris has hit the nail right on the head so to speak.Carrick would be a step backwards.We should be looking at a 19/22 year old.And some one with the talent to progress.One has only to look at Carrick and he really has not flourished under old red nose.And surprisingly his game has not developed either while at United considering the talent he had around him.So I hope this is only a rumour with very little substance.

  6. Another West Ham fan in peace, I know shocker! Totally agree with Chris though if you want your club to continue it’s growth buying a player struggling to get into a team you want to be competing with is hardly strengthening, and if anythign you’d be weakening it if signing Carrick meant you flogged Palacios.

    Would say good luck next season, but I hope you’re relegated 😛
