Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly ruled out panic buying in the January transfer market in order to replace the injured Moussa Sissoko (Standard).

This comes after news that the French midfielder underwent surgery on his knee following an injury picked up on New Year’s Day in the loss to Southampton. Tanguy Ndombele also picked up an injury in the same game.

Sissoko is expected to be out injured until April, when he is scheduled to make a return to training.

This has left Spurs pretty short in the central midfield position, with the likes of Eric Dier, Harry Winks, and Oliver Skipp now the main candidates to start.

Despite the injuries, Spurs are reportedly still looking to prioritise the sales of Victor Wanyama and Christian Eriksen above all else, thus thinning the midfield even further.

While the Daily Star say that Spurs are plotting a replacement for Sissoko, the Evening Standard rubbishes such claims.
