Calum Davenport is set to join Southampton in a loan arrangement until the end of the season. The agreement is pending ratification by the Premier League when their offices re-open in the morning.
England under-21 international defender Calum joined in the August transfer window from Coventry City ahead of making a temporary switch to West Ham United where he made ten appearances before being recalled to begin his Spurs career.
He made a substitute appearance against Aston Villa in November and has featured on the bench several times since. Calum now moves on to further his Premier League experience.
Sporting Director Frank Arnesen feels a loan move in the top flight will benefit both club and player.
"He did very well at West Ham and we took him back because we had injury problems in defence at the time and especially with the very hard programme we've had over the last two or three weeks. We needed him but now everything is okay and, as Calum himself wants to play, it is a good idea for him to go on loan again.
"This is ideal for us, Southampton want him and I think it is very good for Calum and Tottenham in that we can see him play at the highest level. He will hopefully get a lot of games - that is what it is all about."
