Tim Sherwood has admitted that Tottenham won't see any new faces this January, but that some players could be leaving the club.

Despite the usual buzz taking hold of the Premier League in the closing days of the winter transfer window, there has been barely any players linked with moves to White Hart Lane.

"We're not actually looking for anything," said Sherwood.

"Unless something drastic happens between now and the end of the window then we won't be bringing anyone in.

"I am happy with the squad we have here. It is a big squad after we brought seven new players in last summer, and I trust this group of players to take us where we want to be."

However, Sherwood is aware that some players might leave the club, with Borussia Dortmund interested in the unsettled Lewis Holtby, and Napoli still intent on capturing the signature of Etienne Capoue.

Sherwood added: "It is possible that there may be players leaving, although if no one was to go then I would be delighted".

"But I understand, as I do with all players, that they want to play and if they are not getting a lot of opportunities then sometimes you have to be fair to the player. But first and foremost my job is to do what's right for this football club.

Tottenham clearly strengthened their midfield area in the summer, with the arrival of the talented  Brazilian Paulinho and the Danish international Christian Eriksen.

Moreover, Spurs still have some quality players on the bench such as Andros Townsend, Erik Lamela and Nacer Chadli.

The departure of few players on loan, would not really affect Tottenham hopes as they have enough players to cover unforeseen injuries. The return of Emanuel Adebayor put the north London's club back in the top four race and their hopes to qualify for the Champions League are increasingly high.
