Tottenham head coach Tim Sherwood could be set for a January clearout after admitting he would be “happy” to sell some fringe players.
Sherwood, who took over from Andre Villas-Boas last month, has guided Spurs to four victories in his opening five league matches.
However, when questioned on whether he would be prepared to sell during the current transfer window, Sherwood appeared to place a number of his players in the shop window.
“Yes, absolutely,” he said. “As long as they’re the players I don’t want to take us forward, then I’m happy (to sell them).
“But it’s sometimes a case of supply and demand. We’ve got fantastic players here at the club and if we were to lose no one
Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has decided to punish himself for a foul-mouthed rant at Manuel Pellegrini last weekend.
The 52-year-old was caught on camera yelling an expletive-laden insult at his opposite number during his side’s 2-0 defeat to Manchester City after Cheick Tiote had a goal controversially ruled out for offside.
Pardew has escaped any disciplinary action by the Football Association (FA).
And, after once again expressing his disappointment in the comments, Pardew declared that, in the absence of any action from the FA, he would do some community work as a self-imposed punishment, including working with local boys’ clubs.

Hamburg were dealt a huge blow last week with the news that forward Maximilian Beister will miss the rest of the campaign with a knee ligament injury.
Portuguese newspaper O Jogo understands that Manchester United and Valencia lead the chase for Benfica defender Ezequiel Garay.
The Eagles seem to have decided to cash in on the Argentine stopper, and they are obviously looking to sell him to the highest bidder, especially since Real Madrid are entitled to 50% of the transfer fee.
O Jogo has learned that Manchester United and Valencia are locked in the battle for the 27-year-old footballer, whilst Zenit are also keen.
And while the Red Devils see Garay as a perfect long-term replacement for Rio Ferdinand, los Che are looking for defensive reinforcements following the departure of Adil Rami.
Ezequiel Garay has developed into one of world’s top centre-backs during his time at Estadio da Luz and he looks set to leave his current employers for greener pastures.
The big game at the top of the Premier League table this weekend takes place at Stamford Bridge, where title challengers Chelsea take on reigning champions Manchester United.

The veteran Scot would do everything in his power for his team to gain victory, including using mind games superbly prior to matches.

West Ham United have reignited their interest in signing Southampton striker Rickie Lambert, according to the Mail Online.
The Hammers, who are currently above the relegation zone on goal difference, are keen to add extra fire power to their squad despite the return to fitness of Andy Carroll, who made his first appearance of the season in Saturday’s 2-0 win at Cardiff City.
West Ham United have denied reports that Ravel Morrison has gone on strike, according to Sky Sports.
The Hammers top scorer comes after they reported fellow Premier League strugglers Fulham to the Premier League for comments made by Rene Meulensteen after his sides 3-0 win over Norwich City in their FA Cup third round replay.

West Bromwich Albion manager Pepe Mel has revealed he decided to move to England on the back of Rafael Benitez’s advice.
Benitez, Liverpool and Chelsea’s former manager, and Mel have been close friends since they came through the Real Madrid academy system together in the 1970s.
And when Mel was first contacted by West Brom, the 50-year-old rang Benitez, with that conversation prompting him to join the English Premier League club.
“I spoke with Rafael Benitez, he is a very good friend and was a team-mate of mine at Madrid. He really did encourage me to come here to England,” Mel said on Thursday.
“He (Benitez) said to me that West Brom is a club that needs to do a lot of work but still has a lot of possibilities to be successful.
Fiorentina have confirmed Manchester United midfielder Anderson will undergo a medical on Friday ahead of a proposed loan move.
The 25-year-old Brazilian, who arrived at Old Trafford from Porto in 2007, has made just four Premier League appearances for David Moyes’ men this season.
Having been plagued by injuries for much of his time with United, Anderson now appears set to seek regular first-team action in Serie A.
Anderson arrived in Florence on Thursday afternoon and met Fiorentina’s sporting director Daniele Prade and technical director Eduardo Macia.
Fiorentina revealed on their website that the player is set to undergo a medical on Friday, with a view to becoming Vincenzo Montella’s latest signing.
Barcelona have confirmed Brazil forward Neymar sprained tendons in his right ankle during Thursday’s Copa del Rey match at Getafe.
The 21-year-old was hurt as he fell awkwardly when delivering a cross during the first half of the second-leg tie.
Neymar was clearly in pain and unable to put weight on his injured leg as he was helped from the field by medical staff.
A subsequent update from Barcelona’s official Twitter account confirmed Neymar’s injury and revealed he will undergo further tests on Friday in a bid to establish the extent of the problem.
Lionel Messi scored twice as Barcelona beat Getafe 2-0 to ease into the Copa del Rey last eight, but Neymar’s injury overshadowed the win.
The Spanish champions already had one foot in the quarter-finals of the competition after coasting to a 4-0 first-leg win, in which Messi also scored twice.
And the Argentina forward tormented Luis Garcia’s side once again with a goal in each half at Coliseum Alfonso Perez.
Messi converted Cristian Tello’s inviting cross to put the Catalan giants in front and then produced a moment of magic to double the lead, finishing calmly after a trademark solo run that saw him leave several players trailing in his wake.
Xavi came on to make his 700th appearance for the La Liga leaders in the second half, but there was a blow for Barcelona earlier in the game as Neymar hobbled off after spraining tendons in his right ankle when attempting to deliver a cross.

The 19-year-old midfielder, who can also play centre-back, put pen to paper on a new five-year deal with the West Londoners earlier this season and has been tipped as the long-term replacement for John Terry. Moyes keeping tabs on Nick Powell Manchester United boss David Moyes is continuing to monitor the progress of in-form midfielder Nick Powell during his loan spell at Wigan Athletic.
