Tottenham boss: Messi would be a great deadline day signing for us

Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood has confirmed that he doesn't expect any new arrivals at White Hart Lane before the close of the January transfer window.

There's already been one player out of the north London club, with Lewis Holtby joining Fulham on loan until the end of the season.

Plenty of players have been linked with a move to Tottenham in recent works, with deals for the likes of Dimitar Berbatov, Nani and Javier Hernandez all in the pipeline if reports are to be believed.

However Sherwood insists it will be a quiet deadline day for Spurs, despite chairman Daniel Levy's penchant for a last-gasp deal.

"There is a zero per cent chance of us signing anyone," he told reporters today.

He added: "Lionel Messi would be great wouldn't he, he'd be brilliant. Let's hope we can get him in the eleventh hour, but I don't think that's going to happen. We signed seven players in the summer, not a lot of others did that. So we are happy with that.

"It is very, very unlikely anyone comes in unless something dramatic happens. I'm happy with the squad, I'm happy with the numbers and if the window was shut now, I'd be very happy with this squad."

Tottenham will look to bounce back from their 5-1 thrashing at the hands of Manchester City at White Hart Lane on Wednesday when they travel to take on Hull City tomorrow.

The north London club are set to receive a timely boost, with Paulinho, Jan Vertonghen and Younes Kaboul all having been declared match fit for the trip to the KC Stadium.
