Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has confirmed the club are interested in signing Real Madrid striker Ruud van Nistelrooy on loan.

Former Manchester United frontman Van Nistelrooy had been linked with the English Barclays Premier League club and now Redknapp has revealed he would not turn his back if the deal was right.

"It's interesting but it depends what the deal is," said Redknapp of the possibility of landing Van Nistelrooy.

"The chairman would deal with that side but he's an interesting player. He was fantastic in England and a great goalscorer. If he was available it could be of interest. It's not impossible … if it was right we could be interested."

Redknapp also scoffed at suggestions Tottenham are trying to land Manchester United goalkeeper Ben Foster as he prepared his side for Wednesday's league clash with Liverpool at Anfield.

However, it is likely that unhappy Russian striker Roman Pavlyuchenko would have to leave to make way for 33-year-old Van Nistelrooy.

Discussing Pavlyuchenko, Redknapp confirmed: "Pav is looking to move. He was tremendous in training this morning. Only if someone came in and it was a good offer though, otherwise it would not be possible."

Tottenham are well stocked with strikers, and Redknapp said: "I could not have five. It is difficult enough with four and I find it hard leaving one out of picture.

"As for Foster, I never made any offer whatsoever. Ben's a good keeper but I'm looking for back-up. Foster and David James (the Portsmouth goalkeeper) want to go to World Cup - not sit on the bench as a number two."
