Jordan: Nothing is imminent

Spurs have been linked with a host of players, most notably

Blackburn pair Christopher Samba and Junior Hoilett, during this

month’s transfer window, but their only capture so far has been the

permanent signing of Juventus loanee Yago Falque.

The Premier League title chasers have become infamous for their

last-minute purchases on deadline day, although Harry Redknapp’s

ongoing trial may mean they are less likely to conclude any


Spurs’ game against Wigan is due to end just 90 minutes before

the window shuts, making the chances of any dealings even more

remote, but Jordan claims that the match against the Latics does

not mean a last-gasp venture into the market can be ruled out.

“I don’t think the game will affect things, really,” he said.

“There are people within the club that know what the thoughts of

the manager are and they get on and do it.

“You concentrate on what job you are supposed to do so that’s

got nothing to do with it.

“Nothing is imminent as far as I am aware, but in the past

Tottenham have come in with a late purchase and there’s always a

possibility in football.”

Whether Spurs sign anyone before Tuesday night’s deadline could

depend on the movement of players out of White Hart Lane.

The likes of Giovani Dos Santos, Heurelho Gomes, Roman

Pavlyuchenko and Vedran Corluka head a list of up to eight players

who are either unsettled or want to leave the club after becoming

frustrated at a lack of first-team football.

Sebastien Bassong has also been strongly linked with a move away

from the club, although his departure will only come if Spurs snap

up Samba as a replacement as they are already suffering from

injuries at the back.

Jordan, meanwhile, gave some encouraging news about the return

from injury of Sandro and Tom Huddlestone.

Sandro has not played since January 3 after tearing a calf

muscle and Huddlestone has been absent all season due to a

long-term ankle injury.

“Sandro has trained with us but he has been out for a month

now,” Jordan said. “We are not rushing him. He is back, his injury

is clear and we have to make sure he is OK by not rushing him.

“Tom Huddlestone is doing OK. Tom has been excellent in his

recovery because he is that type of player that wants to go and get

back as quickly as possible, but he realises that there is a need

to be cautious.”
