Sherwood: Spurs squad may need a trim

Tim Sherwood has admitted he is keen to trim down his inflated Tottenham squad in January transfer window, with a host of his players being linked with moves away from White Hart Lane

Etienne Capoue in action for France.
Etienne Capoue is among those who look likely to leave Spurs in January.

• Fitch: Over before it started?
• Townsend close to return
• Crace: Bentaleb dilemma

Summer signings Nacer Chadli and Etienne Capoue, along with German midfielder Lewis Holtby – who joined  last January -- are rumoured to be leaving Spurs this month and Sherwood has done little to dampen the rumours that departures are on his immediate agenda.

While most managers tend to spend this month talking about imminent arrivals at their club, Sherwood admitted he is expecting some of his World Cup hopefuls to be making their exit in the next fortnight.

When asked whether he would be willing to sanction transfers this month, Sherwood said: “Absolutely. As long as they are the right players and the ones I don’t want to take us forward, then I am happy.

“You can only go with a certain amount of players and the pressure is on because it is a World Cup year for a lot of these players. They need to play and we can’t guarantee they are going to get maximum game time.

“We are certainly not going to be leaving ourselves short and if no-one left, I wouldn’t be shedding any tears over that either. We understand that there is pressure with the World Cup and they need to play.

“Sometimes, supply and demand is an issue. Especially with some of the guys I am still getting to know. I have a certain amount of trust in some players more than others, but the longer I am on the training ground, the more I get attached to the new players as well.”

Sherwood did not deny that midfielder Capoue is one of the players who may be surplus to requirements at Tottenham, as he suggested youngster Nabil Bentaleb is ahead of him in the queue for a first team spot.

“All I can say as regard to Etienne Capoue is hasn’t given me one minute’s problem here,” Sherwood said. “He realises I will use Nabil Bentaleb ahead of him. The same goes for Lewis Holtby. I knew the young boy and trusted him, so I went with him.

“Etienne has been asked to play in reserve games to keep up their fitness and did that no problem. There is no issue between us and the same goes for all the other players. While they are at the club, they are in my plans.

“Whether it is Etienne Capoue, Lewis Holtby or Nacer Chadli, if I feel they can help us win the next game, I will use them.”

Sherwood confirmed he is leaving incoming transfer business to sporting director Franco Baldini, as he again insisted he was not interesting in signing a striker to replace the imminently departing Jermain Defoe.

“We have enough attacking options here and it is their opportunity to move forward now and this week, it feels like we had four or five new signings, with players coming back,” he added. “Not many clubs spent the money we did and signed seven players in the summer, so we are not actively looking to sign anyone.

“I fully trust the squad we have got to be very competitive between now and the end of the season. If we prepare well, we should beat most teams in this division.”

Sherwood confirmed that defenders Younes Kaboul and Jan Vertonghen have returned to training but will not be available for the trip to Swansea on Sunday.

Winger Andros Townsend could be set for a return this weekend after shaking off a hamstring injury, while Brazil midfielder Sandro is also fit after an injury lay-off.
