At the end of the QPR game, Andre Villas-Boas looked to reassure fans by claiming that Sandro’s injury wasn’t as serious as feared. The Brazilian hobbled off after 26 minutes of our match with QPR but AVB’s comments suggested that he may be fit enough to take his place in the line up for Sunday’s game with Manchester United.

However, the club announced yesterday that Sandro did indeed need surgery on the knee and that his recovery time was yet to be assessed.

Naturally, Spurs have a more than able deputy in Scott Parker but there are suggestions today that the club will look to bring forward the transfer of Lewis Holtby from Schalke 04.

Schalke general manager Horst Heldt has said,

“This transfer window will not close until the end of the month. We have signed Raffael and it could become a fact that we will sell or buy one or more players this month.

“We will have to wait on a certain progress in some affairs.”

Sandro’s injury may not force Spurs into the transfer market as some are suggesting but with Holtby already lined up for the summer, perhaps this move does make some sense?

  1. Would make a lot of sense.
    Parker, Huddlestone and Livermore are adeqaute cover for Sandro but we’ll need another body or 2 in the midfield to be competetive in every game to the end of the season.
    Willian would be great as we clearly lack a bit of creativity apart from Bale.
    Guessing Levy won’t make any signings til he’s offloaded Bentley etc first though

  2. Spure need to replace—— huddlestone & LIVERMOER TO MOUNTINHO OR FERNANDINO & CAPOUE OR MVILLA TO COVER SANDRO – PARKER – AND DEMBLELE GO TO COVER BEHIND THE STRIKER MORE ATTAKING ROLL WITH HOLTBY

  3. daniel levy will be an idiot not to bring in holtby this window now – he has great energy and can play centre mid – with sandro out the rest of the season if parker gets injured we are screwed if we have to play with useless huddlestone in mid and wont get in the top 4

    • an idiot you say?

      perhaps you could lend the club the couple of million needed to bring him in when we have him free in 6 months?

      i personally feel that we should try to bring him in, but i won’t be labelling him an idiot if he decides not to.

  4. Heck of a lot of sense, surely even our illustrious leader won’t baulk at getting a German international for under 2 million will he?
    Anything has to be preferable to putting Hudd and Liver in our midfield – shudder at the thought.
