The former Scotland international left his job as first-team coach at Pompey, where he had worked under Redknapp, yesterday and will take up a similar role at Spurs.

The 56-year-old completes Redknapp's backroom staff, joining assistant manager Kevin Bond.

Redknapp said: "I am delighted to have Kevin and Joe with me here. They have both worked with me before, they are terrific football people and in my opinion they will bring so much to this club."

Redknapp added: "They have managed and coached at the top level and are two individuals who are not only friends but people who I can rely on 100% to do the job.

"You need people around you who you can trust and will back you and that is what I have got in Kevin and Joe.''

Jordan, who played for Leeds United, Manchester United and AC Milan, managed at Bristol City, Hearts and Southampton before joining Redknapp at Fratton Park.

Bond, 51, worked with Redknapp at Portsmouth and Southampton and was manager at Bournemouth from October 2006, until September this year when he was sacked.

Redknapp has also recruited former Spurs stalwarts Tim Sherwood and Les Ferdinand to work on the coaching team.

The Spurs manager said: "Tim and Les are also coming in to do a bit of work with the lads. Having them around the place will be great for us.''
