Tottenham Hotspur boss Tim Sherwood has admitted that it would take 'something drastic' for the club to enter the transfer market before it slams shut in the final days of January.

It appears that the Spurs manager is keen to keep the core of his current squad intact, as they make a bid for Champions League football.

Sherwood has made a solid start to life in management following the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas at White Hart Lane, but he won't be looking to make a big splash in the final days of the window.

He said: "We're not actually looking for anything. Unless something drastic happens between now and the end of the window then we won't be bringing anyone in."

However, he has not ruled out the possibility of either Lewis Holtby or Etienne Capoue leaving the club on loan.

"You have to be fair to the players. We have a lot of players in that midfield area and if an opportunity does arise, and it's right for the football club, then we will let players move on."

Holtby has been linked with a move to Dortmund in recent weeks, whist Capoue is attracting the interest of Rafael Benitez at Napoli.
