Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has refused to rule out a January move for Ivory Coast striker Didier Drogba.

Drogba, 33, recently rejected the offer of a one-year contract extension by Chelsea as uncertainty surrounds the futures of a number of the club's senior players.

Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas has already accepted transfer requests from Nicolas Anelka and Alex as he looks to overhaul an aging playing squad.

Drogba has fallen behind Fernando Torres and Daniel Sturridge in the Chelsea starting XI and is believed have grown frustrated at the lack of playing time on offer at Stamford Bridge.

Redknapp has admitted he would be keen to bring the Ivory Coast international to White Hart Lane in January.

"Drogba is a top player, a fantastic player, so, who knows? I couldn't sit here and say we wouldn't be interested," Redknapp said. "Anyone would be interested in having Didier Drogba in their team but we have not made any enquiries."

However, Drogba moved to distance himself from speculation linking him with a January move away from west London by revealing he is confident Villas-Boas can turn Chelsea's troubled season around.

"Everything is coming together for the manager," said the Chelsea forward after Saturday's 3-0 win at Newcastle. "You have to remember it is his first season in the Premier League, it's not easy for him and it isn't easy for the players or the club.

"Yes, we have been in a difficult moment, but you have to stick together and make sure, when we are on the pitch, we are all pulling in the same direction. That's what we are doing right now and it's great to see.

"It was so important to win here and I think that we are getting back to doing the simple things. Maybe we didn't play that well, but the three points was vital for us."
