Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp believes out-of-contract Chelsea star Joe Cole has already agreed a free transfer away from Stamford Bridge.[LNB] The 28-year-old, named on Tuesday in England's 23-man squad for the World Cup, appears set to leave the Premier League champions this summer and has been linked with a number of clubs, notably Spurs and Manchester United. Arsenal are also said to be in the running for his signature.[LNB]But Redknapp, Cole's old manager at West Ham, said he would not be heading to White Hart Lane.[LNB]"It looks to me someone's going to make a great free transfer, if he doesn't stay at Chelsea," Redknapp told BBC Radio 5 Live.[LNB]"I genuinely don't know who that is. I don't think it's going to be Tottenham.[LNB]"I've got a feeling, I may be wrong, that he's already agreed a deal with someone, and it's not Tottenham.[LNB]"I'm not saying if he hadn't agreed a deal with someone and he was available and didn't stay at Chelsea that we wouldn't be interested.[LNB]"I'm a big fan of Joe's, but the feedback we've had is that he might well have already done something."[LNB]Cole struggled with injury for large parts of last season and on his return to fitness was often overlooked by Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti.
