Tottenham Hotspur morning news: Sherwood plans for 'his own players', can Newcastle man revitalise the squad?

Tim Sherwood Press Conference 12/02/2014

A round up of news stories this morning about Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham Head Coach Tim Sherwood has hinted he’s planning a major overhaul of players this summer.

Tottenham’s home defeat to Arsenal yesterday has damaged the club’s chances of a top four place and the manager says he will respond at the end of the season.

“The building process has to come in pre-season and getting your own players in, looking at the ones you need to keep and move a few on. I’m not crying about it, I knew what I was coming in to and that it would be very difficult. I’ve been dealt a hand and I’m playing the players accordingly,” said the boss.

One of the players in question Sherwood could target is Newcastle United forward Loic Remy.

Remy has bagged 13 goals in 24 games on loan from Championship side QPR and the Metro has suggested Spurs will move for him this summer.

The paper suggests Spurs are looking to snap up the player ahead of Newcastle United, playing on their association with former coach Harry Redknapp.

The Mirror has claimed another possible target for Spurs is Diego Poyet, son of Sunderland boss Gus Poyet.

Scouts have reportedly been at most games he’s played following his senior debut for Charlton Athletic.

However, Spurs will face competition from London rivals Arsenal and West Ham United if they decide to go after the teenager.
