Tottenham supporters have spent today drowning their sorrows in the Football Transfer Tavern having seen their side knocked out of the FA Cup at the expense of Leicester City on Saturday.
Whilst it wasn’t the same level of shock that Manchester City experienced at home to Middlesbrough or indeed Chelsea experienced at home to Bradford City, the late loss to the Premier League strugglers will come as a huge blow to Mauricio Pochettino.
Tottenham are a draw against Sheffield United away from reaching Wembley in the Capital One Cup Final so the feeling was that the confidence from one cup run could breed another.
Now it will be all about Wednesday night at Bramall Lane and then the race for the top four.
And yesterday’s result showed that whilst Tottenham may have been on a decent run, a couple more additions would certainly not go amiss.
Spurs shocked most onlookers when completing the surprise signing of then New Zealand international veteran Ryan Nelsen in January 2012 and we wonder whether any shock additions could be still made this month.
Leaving it late, we have identified five potential surprise signings that could still go ahead before the close of the window.
