Tottenham first-team coach Joe Jordan has not ruled out the possibility of the club signing a big-name player before the transfer window closes on Tuesday night.

Numerous names have been linked with a move to north London this month, including the likes of Blackburn defender Christopher Samba, Blackburn forward Junior Hoilett, and Marseille striker Loic Remy.

Spurs boss Harry Reknapp is renowned for pulling off a last minute deal, and took everyone by surprise when Rafael Van der Vaart arrived at White Hart Lane in 2010 just minutes before the transfer deadline.

"In the past Tottenham have made a late purchase once or twice so there is always a possibility," said Jordan. "But I heard of nothing this morning.

"There are no Spurs players in discussions or in transit."


After an impressive first half of the season, Tottenham are within touching distance of the Barclays Premier League summit, and Redknapp is reportedly keen to add to his squad in a bid to keep the club's title challenge alive this year.

With Emmanuel Adebayor's season long loan spell unlikely to come to fruition in the form of a permanent deal, Spurs are already on the lookout for a new striker to provide competition for the likes of the aforementioned Van der Vaart, Jermain Defoe and Roman Pavlyuchenko.
