The former Bradford City and Wolves star declared his interest in a possible move to the Lane and reunion with Glenn yesterday.
Richards said: "I've still got ambitions and I'd still love to play for a big, big club - and Spurs are a big, big club. If it did come up and it was an option, then I wouldn't write it off.
"Glenn's record speaks for itself. Last season, he worked wonders for us. I hold him in high regard and I've got a lot of respect for him. Whether I work with him again or not - who knows?”
Glenn, preparing for Sunday’s final friendly against AEK Athens in Greece, said: “I’ve gone on record to say that Deano is one on the list.
“He is one on the list but we’ll see where that takes us.
“As far as I’m concerned we made contact a couple of weeks ago with the club. At the moment nothing is happening, that’s how it is.
“There are other options that we’re looking at but Deano is on that list.”
Glenn Hoddle has revealed that we have contacted Southampton about the availability of Dean Richards — and confirmed that the Saints’ defensive rock had always been on his list of targets.
