Spurs update: six players could be leaving today – Assou-Ekoto, Gomes, Huddlestone and more

Daniel Levy’s fax machine looks like it is going to have a very busy day today. Let’s hope he hasn’t forgotten to get extra paper – he will probably need it.

As well as players coming in as many as six players could be heading away from the Lane.

Tom Huddlestone, who has been a target for several clubs in the window, is now rumoured to be on his way to Fulham. With the arrival of Lewis Holtby the player may see his opportunities limited at the Lane and many sources are expecting that he will be a Fulham player by the end of the day in exchange for around £5 milion.

One possible loan deal that TalkSport among others are suggesting is that full back Benoit Assou-Ekoto could be on his way to Inter Milan for the rest of the season. Assou-Ekoto has been a staple in the Spurs team for several seasons but this year has struggled with injury. Talksport also suggests that Inter’s versatile Alvaro Pereira, who can play at left back or left midfield, could be heading to Spurs.

In slightly less surprising news The Enfield Independent claims that Spurs stopper Heurelho Gomes is on the brink of sealing a loan move to Hoffenheim.

Meanwhile Harry Redknapp, the king of the window, is considering bringing several Spurs players to QPR. Jermaine Jenas, David Bentley and Andros Townsend are all on his list with short term deals for the first two and a loan deal for Townsend on the cards.

    I can see 5 of these deals happening but if I am honest AVB wont want to weaken the defence so Benni will still be with us tomorrow which is good but happy to see the rest go ahead but only if we can do some deals of our own we desperately need a goal scorer Defoe is a good striker but he has gone off the boil lately and Ade well we all knew he would be half the man once he got his permanent deal so we need someone to give them a kick up the backside and make them fight for there place because thats what is needed so come on Mr Levy get out there do whatever fancy deals you have been stirring in the pot all jan bring in the striker we all crave because if you dont we can forget about 4th COYS
