Former QPR defender Benoit Assou-Ekotto is weighing up a move to join Birmingham City; or whether to become a porn star, according to Blues' boss Harry Redknapp.
The defender is out of contract with Ligue 1 side Metz and Redknapp hasn’t hidden his desire to bring him to St Andrew’s.
However according to Redknapp, the 33-year-old may be about to choose the adult film industry ahead of extending his football career.
Speaking to the Birmingham Mail, Redknapp said of his interest in the defender: "The only trouble is that he’s admitted he wants to be a pornstar.
“Maybe I can get another year out of him before he decides to do that.
“What a good player. He could well end up in the Birmingham colours next year, Benoit.”
The new role would be an unorthodox career move should he choose to go down that route, but Assou-Ekotto has stated previously that his passions lie away from football.
During a revealing interview with The Guardian in 2010 , Assou-Ekotto explained how he enjoys the money that football brings more than playing the game itself.
He said: "If I play football with my friends back in France, I can love football.
"But if I come to England, where I knew nobody and I didn't speak English, why did I come here? For a job.
"A career is only 10, 15 years. It's only a job. Yes, it's a good, good job and I don't say that I hate football but it's not my passion.
"I arrive in the morning at the training ground at 10.30 and I start to be professional. I finish at one o'clock and I don't play football afterwards.
"When I am at work, I do my job 100%. But after, I am like a tourist in London. I have my Oyster card and I take the tube. I eat.”
Should the defender opt for a move to join Harry Redknapp at Birmingham City, one can only imagine the chants which the French left-back may be on the receiving-end of.
