Jermain Defoe - With Spurs boss Andre-Villas Boas opting to start new arrival Roberto Soldado as his lone forward, rumours have strongly linked Defoe with a move away from White Hart Lane.

However, with the North London outfit struggling for goals so far this season and England international Defoe having proved his considerable worth in the Europa League, he should remain at White Hart Lane.

Erik Lamela - Argentine starlet Lamela has struggled since his £30 million move from Roma this summer, but talk of a potential exit is laughably premature. When the 21-year-old gets used to the increased pace and physicality on offer in the Premier League, he will be a formidable talent.

Heurelho Gomes - Let me be clear here, I do not for one moment think that Gomes has any real future at Spurs. However, with the recent injury sustained by Hugo Lloris and Brad Friedel showing his age, it is vital that Villas-Boas retains a credible third goalkeeper option. He should only be sold in January if there is an adequate replacement lined up.
