FA CUP : -   The winner of the FA Cup Fourth Round replay with Southampton will be at home to Norwich City in the Fifth Round.

RUMOURS : -   West Ham United London have made an enquiry about signing Kyle Walker-Peters, but surely Spurs wouldn't do that to him would they ?   South Coast Big Club and Crystal Palace are still keen on the 22 year old right back.  Spurs are in talks with AC Milan to sign Krzysztof Piatek, with some reports saying we would throw in Victor Wanyama, Serge Aurier and Erik Lamela.  The Argentine is an odd one in that trio, as he has done well when introduced by the Head Coach, so wouldn't necessary look to be one he wanted to get rid of.  Another AC Milan forward is interesting Jose Mourinho apparently, with Andre Silva being considered as a potential January signing.  Some reports claim that Daniel Levy has squeezed an extra 5% out of Internazionale to add to the transfer fee for Christian Eriksen which will pay off the sell-on clause inserted by Ajax when Tottenham bought the Danish midfielder.  Not intent in signing quality striker, Spurs are being linked with "active talks" over signing Islam Slimani from Leicester City.  Let's hope that a rumour is all that it is.  Tottenham are still in contention to sign Juventus and former Liverpool midfielder Emre Can, but it looks like Borussia Dortmund might be favourites for his signature.  Tottenham and West Ham United London have been unsuccessful in loan bids for FC Porto striker Moussa Menga.  Danny Rose may leave Spurs on loan during this transfer window, while fellow defender Juan Foyth is a transfer target for West Ham United London.

UNDER-23s : -   Development Squad goalkeeper Brandon Austin has been loaned to Danish club Viborg until the end of the season.

RUMOURS : -   Some media reports indicate that Christian Eriksen may leave in January to sign for Internazionale for GBP20 million, while others say that he has rejected a new Spurs contract and is in talks with Paris Saint Germain regarding a summer free transfer.  The Daily Mail reports that Tottenham are keen on completing the permanent signing of Giovani Lo Celso in January for GBP27 million.  Someone is having a laugh with the rumour that Spurs are interested in signing Willian from Chelsea.  As well as an interest in battling Arsenal to sign Max Aarons, Spurs are keeping a watching brief on Norwich City's 21 year old Todd Cantwell.  Reports from Italy reckon Tottenham might look to AC Milan forward Krzysztof Piatek to fill the gap left by Harry Kane's hamstring injury, with offers around 35 million Euros to be considered for the 24 year old Polish international.  Another striker Spurs are said to be looking at is Internazionale's Gabriel Barbosa, who has been on loan at Flamengo for a season, but is now back in Italy.  Tottenham are looking at Dinamo Zagreb's Spanish midfielder Dani Olmo, but with his former club Barcelona expressing interest, it is unlikely that he will be heading to the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.

UNDER-18s : -  Spurs beat Fulham Under-18s 4-1 at Hotspur Way this morning thanks to goals from Harvey White with two penalties, Romaine Mundle and Tarelle Whittaker.
