The former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp is back in football after accepting an advisory role at his former club Bournemouth.

The 65-year-old has been out of the game since his surprise sacking by Tottenham in June, despite leading them to fourth in the Premier League last season.

But Redknapp has now agreed to return to the League One club where he began his career in management in 1983, taking up a position in which he will offer advice and expertise. The club's chairman, Eddie Mitchell, said: "It's been in my mind for quite some time to get him involved and tap into his knowledge."

Redknapp enjoyed a successful spell at Bournemouth, helping them escape relegation from the Football League in his first season in charge, and beating Manchester United in the FA Cup.
