Ashley Cole has confirmed he would consider a move to Birmingham City.
Both Ashley Cole and Robbie Keane were open to joining the Sky Bet Championship side last month.
Asked if Birmingham’s interest in him was something he was considering, Cole told LA reporters: “Yeah, I’m just waiting to see, keep my options open.
“It’s six months left here, so it’s something I’m thinking about yeah.”
Meanwhile, Sky sources understand Keane is now close to agreeing a deal to join Teddy Sheringham at Indian side Atletico de Kolkata.
The former Chelsea and Arsenal man is thought to be settled with him family in Los Angeles but could be open to a return to England.
Speaking in July to the Birmingham Mail, Redknapp said: “Someone mentioned him and I thought ‘That is an interesting player, for sure’. You can’t beat a bit of quality.
“And for me he was possibly the best left back in the world a few years ago at one time when he was at Chelsea. I know Ashley, he’s a great lad and he could certainly play at this level – no problem.”
