Gareth Bale's departure from Tottenham to Real Madrid enabled Andre Villas-Boas to go on a summer spending spree that even Roman Abramovich would have been proud of, but following the arrival of several new stars perhaps a few others should be joining Bale in the departures lounge.

Vlad Chiriches, Paulinho, Roberto Soldado, Erik Lamela, Etienne Capoue, Nacer Chadli and Christian Eriksen all arrived to bolster what was an already sizeable squad.

With seven internationals coming into the squad, Villas-Boas knew he'd have to let a few go and while the likes of Steven Caulker and Clint Dempsey have moved on, there's no doubt a few more players sitting around White Hart Lane assessing their options.

We take a look at some of those who could benefit from a move away from White Hart Lane in January, whether it be permanently or on a temporary basis?
