JOSE MOURINHO will look to loan out Jack Clarke this month.
Spurs signed the winger in July and immediately loaned him back to the Championship club for the 2019/20 season.
But Tottenham recalled him as he only played three games for them this season.
He said: “I know it's finished but the structure is looking for another loan where he can play.
“In this half of the season, he was not playing much and the objective of a loan is for the players to play.”
JOSE MOURINHO does not know whether Christian Eriksen will be sold in January.
Speaking at the press conference, he said: “I don't know and I am being honest.
“You know the situation, in this moment he can agree with any club for the end of the season. That is one option.
“Another option is a club and himself want to do a deal in January, but in that situation our club is in control.
“We have control of the situation. Another possibility is he stays.
“In this moment he is here, he is our player.”
ARSENAL will rival Tottenham for Norwich starlet Max Aarons, according to reports.
Sportsmail understand the Canaries will entertain a fee in the region of £30million for the 19-year-old.
Everton and West Ham have also been linked to the defender following his sublime spell of form.
It is understood that Spurs remain as the firm favourites.
BENFICA are listening to offers for former Spurs target Gedson Fernandes.
The Portuguese club are willing to offload the 20-year-old as he has featured just eight times this term.
According to Sky Sports, his representatives have been to the UK and held discussions with four Premier League clubs.
Spurs were heavily linked to him in the summer, but face competition from the likes of Manchester United and West Ham.
PAUL MERSON has urged Spurs to go all out for Southampton striker Danny Ings.
The Saints forward has scored 15 goals and made one assist this season.
Ex-Arsenal star Merson told Sky Sports: “I'm thinking if I was Tottenham I'd be going for Ings in this window.
“He plays the Tottenham way, he's got a great brain, he's clever, he comes off people.
“They're looking like they might lose Eriksen, it doesn't look like he's going to sign, so try and have a little bit of cover.”
