With Harry at the Villarreal vs. Almeria game, possibly watching Giuseppe Rossi or Pablo Piatti, and football agent Barry Silkman telling Sky Sports News that loan moves for Real Madrid's Karim Benzema and Lassana Diarra maybe coming off, things could look whiter than lilywhite in and around White Hart Lane this transfer window.

Harry Redknapp spoke with Colin Mafham of the Express in a frank interview and laid out the facts about our intended title challenge.

"If we could find someone who would make a big difference to us then I know the chairman would go for him.

"But it's hard to find somebody like Terry or Carragher who can change the place and be a bit of a leader.

Done Deal?

Has Daniel Levy agreed to sign Wickham?The news on everyone's lips at the moment is that Daniel Levy has done a deal with Marcus Evans (the Ipswich owner and Chairman) to bring the highly talked about youngster, Connor Wickham to Spurs in the January 2011 transfer window.

Obviously, the club haven't announced anything and aren't likely to any time soon, but the media have jumped on this bandwagon and it's gathering pace.

Curtains for our Captain?

So the news has flooded in that Harry has accepted an offer from Sunderland for our captain, Keano. The £9 million quoted, is a far cry from the £40 million Harry wanted for Robbie, but I suppose it will do for now.

Do I think there's any truth to the story? Yes, I do. The fact that no one has come out to quash the rumour, speaks volumes.

New Signings

Right then, where were we? That's right, on the deals that are supposed to have happened, but according to Tottenham Hotspur, haven't.

Just so that we're clear, Eidur Gudjohnsen has signed up until the end of the season on loan. I'll get to him in a minute.

The news I'm not too sure about, is the Kaboul/Begovic signings.

No to striker

All this talk of us signing Bellamy has really got me banging my head against the wall. Do I think he's a quality striker? Yes. Can he fit into our team? Absolutely not!

First off, if Harry does end up signing him, can someone tell me where he's supposed to play? With Modric on the way back and Crouch & Defoe reforming their partnership, why risk it all on a player that has a dodgy knee and a temperamental personality?

January Transfer Targets

We're not far off of the January Sales and as usual, the media have us pinned down as spenders. To fair though, they've not gone all out and branded us as major spenders.

So far, The Mirror have come up with the notion that Harry is to make a bid for City's Micah Richards, whilst The Telegraph have provided us with the news that la-Z-boy Adriano, will replace our other lazy layabout, Roman Pavlyuchenko.

Barcelona (AFP) – Barcelona are planning a fresh assault on Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho in the January transfer window, the Catalan club’s CEO Oscar Grau promised on Wednesday.

Barca were thwarted in their attempt to prise Coutinho away from Anfield during the summer with Liverpool placing a reported 200 million euros ($238 million) asking price on the midfielder.

The Front Office Apparently Took A Gold Cup Vacation

We are now 11 days into the 31 day summer transfer window. So far the only thing approaching a valid rumor was a brief blip around Michael Carrick last night which the Front Office dispelled this morning by saying there have been no discussions with him. Squashing that story is the ONLY thing we've heard out of the front office in regards to player movement during the transfer window.

The third-place Olympique de Marseille will have more challenges than just to keep up with Ligue 1 leaders in their next matches. With nine points behind leader Paris Saint-Germain and three points behind second-place Olympique Lyonanis; Marseille like many other teams in Europe decided to trade and acquire players within the Winter transfer window in January.

In for Horseface

I've just heard the news that it is quite possible that Ruud van Nistelrooy could become our first Winter Sales signing.

Harry has said that he's definitely interested in the Dutch striker, although I'd think we'd have to do something about Pavlyuchenko before bringing in another striker.

I personally feel Ruud could do a job for us, as long as he's comfortable coming off the bench.
