Jamie Redknapp will today leave the club to join Southampton with Calum Davenport also set to head south in a loan arrangement for the remainder of the season.
The popular midfielder and club captain leaves the Lane after almost three years, during which time he made 53 first team appearances following his transfer from Liverpool and was appointed skipper after the departure of Teddy Sheringham at the end of season 2002-03.
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.
