Former Arsenal captain Patrick Vieira has told Harry Redknapp he wants to join Tottenham from Inter Milan.

Redknapp's priority at the moment is for cover at centre-back but he is also in the market for a defensive midfielder and the club have made an enquiry to Real Madrid about Lassana Diarra. He feels Vieira would add quality to his midfield and has no reservations over the 33-year-old spending almost a decade at the club's rivals.

He said: "If he wants to come to Tottenham it shows you about his character. He wants to come and play, he's a fantastic player and wants to play here."

He added: "I'm still interested in Patrick, I would like him," Redknapp said after the friendly 1-1 draw against Barcelona at Wembley.

"What's he done wrong? He hasn't killed anyone, he's just a great player who played for Arsenal.

"If he wants to come to Tottenham it shows you about his character. He wants to come and play, he's a fantastic player and wants to play here."
