A report says that a number of Tottenham Hotspur players, including Jermain Defoe, could be sold to make room for new signings.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas has reportedly made a number of his senior players available for transfer this summer.

The Portuguese boss is eager to sign a handful of fresh faces, with Barcelona striker David Villa and Brazil international Paulinho believed to be on top of his wishlist.

However, before he can make any major additions, Villas-Boas has been informed by the club's board that he must free up funds by selling some of his current players, according to the London Evening Standard.

The report further claims that as a result, Tom Huddlestone, Scott Parker, Emmanuel Adebayor, Benoit Assou-Ekotto, Jermain Defoe and Clint Dempsey could all be allowed to leave White Hart Lane if acceptable offers are received.

It has also been reported that midfielder Jake Livermore will be sent out on loan.
