All the latest news, views, and speculation relating to Tottenham.

Danny Rose, on-loan at Sunderland, says he has no intention of returning to sit on the bench next season. Benoit Assou-Ekotto stands in his path at left-back, and unless he is sold, it's hard to see him being ousted. Rose says he is thankful for all Spurs have done for him, but appears ready to move on, so expect it to be 'see you later Danny' come the summer.

Former Spurs striker Louis Saha has found a club after being released by Sunderland, he is to sign a deal with Serie A side Lazio until the end of the season.

On the topic of Lazio, three more men have been arrested for the incident ahead of Spurs' tie with the club in Rome which saw Tottenham supporters attacked and stabbed.

West Brom defender Goran Popov has issued a public apology after being sent off for spitting at Tottenham's Kyle Walker at the weekend. But be warned, his statement includes the line, 'I'm not that type of player'. He says he will try to contact Kyle Walker to say sorry for the incident, but has so far been unable to get his phone number to do so.

In one last look at Tottenham's deadline day dealings, we ask if chairman Daniel Levy should take a leaf out of Liverpool owner John Henry's book, and write an open letter explaining the club's failure to bring in a striker in the transfer window.

We also have the account of Emmanuel Adebayor's journey back from South Africa where he was playing in the African Nations Cup, and how he ended up paying for a private jet to fly the players out of the country following their defeat.

As it is international week, we have also asked if Lewis Holtby's move to Tottenham can make him a regular for the German national side, but he will have to get past Mesut Ozil to do so.

Looking forward to Tottenham's weekend with Newcastle, it's been confirmed that Cheik Tiote will be available after the Ivory Coast were also knocked out of the competition at the same stage as Adebayor's Togo. Spurs are yet to make an announcement on Adebayor'a availability for the match.
