Skysports.com understands Tottenham are lining up a shock move for former Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves.
Hargreaves is available on a free transfer after being released by United earlier this summer following a series of knee injuries that blighted his time at Old Trafford.
The 30-year-old is determined to find himself a new club in the Premier League and even took to YouTube to prove his fitness in a series of videos.
West Brom and Leicester City have both expressed an interest in signing the England international, but Hargreaves has yet to fix himself up with a new club.
Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is now weighing up a move for the former Bayern Munich man as he looks to bolster his midfield options.
Redknapp is desperate to reinforce his midfield after seeing his options blighted by a series of injuries to key players.
Brazilian Sandro is recovering from a serious knee injury after undergoing surgery, while Jermaine Jenas and Tom Huddlestone have both been struggling with injuries this term.
Redknapp's options could be further limited by the possible departures of Wilson Palacios and Luka Modric.
Palacios is on the verge of a move to Stoke, while Modric's future remains shrouded in doubt as he looks to secure a move to Chelsea.
Redknapp is thought to be a big fan of Hargreaves and he could decide to offer the 30-year-old a move to Spurs on a short-term basis if he can prove his fitness, as the Canadian-born midfielder would prove to be a bargain if he can stay fit and recapture the form that helped him win 42 caps for England.
