Joe Cole “wanted to come to Tottenham” Harry Redknapp has revealed.
The 28-year-old moved to Liverpool earlier this week, signing a four-year deal worth Â£90,000 a week.
“I spoke to him a month ago and I thought he was coming here,” said Tottenham manager Redknapp, who managed the midfielder at West Ham.
“He wanted to come to Spurs. He’d made his mind up – I had no doubt. But a month went by and Liverpool moved in.”
“I feel we could contend for the title; we have got the players here,” added Redknapp.
“We have to aim for it. We could win the championship.
“Last year, we went in saying we wanted to finish in the top four and if you don’t aim for things, you have no chance.”
