Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp would be interested in signing Carlos Tevez, despite the Argentine's off the field problems.

Tevez is currently contesting allegations he refused to appear as a substitute for Manchester City in their Champions League tie against Bayern Munich.

The incident is set to bring to an end to Tevez's City career, with the club seeking an easy route to rid of the striker, and Tottenham manager Redknapp says he would be open to a move.

"I would take him if he were available for sure, warts and all. Who wouldn't?" Redknapp said.


"If Manchester City want to let me have him on loan and massively subsidise it, I'll take him tomorrow.

"Say what you like, but he's a world-class player and you can't say he doesn't work his socks off when he plays.

"And world-class players are in short supply."

Tottenham have already signed Emmanuel Adebayor on loan from City and the acquisition of Tevez would be a big boost to their attempts to qualify for the Champions League.

However, although City are expected to contest for the title they may be hesitant in allowing Tevez to join Tottenham, a club they may perceive to be a rival.
