Revealed: Five Tottenham stars braced for late exits as they wait by their phones
Five Tottenham players are braced for late exits ahead of the 5pm transfer deadline today, Football Insider has learned.
Spurs are listening to offers for international defenders Danny Rose and Cameron Carter-Vickers after giving the green light for them to go permanently.
A Tottenham source has told Football Insider that youthful trio Jack Clarke, George Marsh and Anthony Georgiou could also be loaned out to EFL clubs by this evening.
The quintet are waiting by their phones to see how deadline day develops in what promises to be another busy day of transfer activity.
The main focus of the Londoners is agreeing the signing of Joe Rodon from Swansea City.
Discussions are continuing between the clubs after a number of offers from Spurs were knocked back, and a deal is still possible.

Notwithstanding Rodon’s potential arrival, Jose Mourinho is keen to trim a squad that has been strengthened by six senior arrivals this window.
The most likely senior departure is Carter-Vickers, with Tottenham preferring a permanent deal rather than another loan.
Football Insider revealed earlier this week that Bournemouth are in pole position to sign him but are reluctant to meet the asking price of £2.5-3million.
Offloading Rose has proved even more difficult as he is on wages beyond Championship clubs and is not keen on dropping down a division, either.
Loan deals for Clarke, Marsh and Georgiou may depend upon how much game time they are likely to get at potential new teams.
