Former Chelsea and now Manchester City defender Tal Ben Haim wants to leave the Eastlands club and urges Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp to come and get me.

According to the Daily Mirror, the Israeli international has instructed his agent to begin negotiations with the south London club after City suggested he could leave during the current January transfer window.

With Manchester City looking to strengthen in the transfer window, the centre-back looks surplus to requirements at the City of Manchester Stadium.

Ben Haim moved to City from Chelsea in July 2008 for a fee in the region of £5million, but after making just 15 appearances for Mark Hughes side, the 26-year-old is already set to leave the club after failing to impress.

Spurs are thought to be on the verge of offering City £4.5 million for his services.
