  • Birmingham boss set to swoop for three former Premier League stars

Birmingham City manager Harry Redknapp has revealed he is keen to acquire the services of LA Galaxy defender Ashley Cole.

The 70-year-old has praised the veteran trio and hopes to with the help of more experience and talent, turn the Midlands side into top six contenders in the Championship.

Reports had linked the 107-capped former England worldwide with a move to the Championship club and Redknapp feels that despite Cole's advanced age he would still be a major asset to a club chasing Premier League promotion.

The 36-year-old, who spent the majority of his career in London playing for Arsenal and Chelsea, is now plying his trade Stateside for Major League Soccer side LA Galaxy.

With Redknapp set to take Brum fans for a trip down memory lane with these move for Keane, Cole and Downing, it'll be worthwhile seeing whether the three still have it in them to perform against some of the country's biggest clubs.

"Ashley Cole, for me, was the best left-back in the world a few years ago".

"I know Ashley, he's a great lad and he could certainly play at this level - no problem. Wage-wise I don't know where we would go with it, I haven't got a clue what he earns, and he belongs to Middlesbrough, but I think they've said he can go on a free, so he's of interest". He's a great trainer.

"He knows he wouldn't play every week but just to have him around..." They're all interesting but till you speak to them, you don't know. "I'm sure he'd fight tooth and nail to get a regular place in the team".

Those results saw Birmingham finish two points above the drop and Redknapp understandably is seeking to inject experience as they aim to make a Premier League return.
