Harry Redknapp will look to bolster his Tottenham squad in January by bringing in Villarreal attacking midfielder Borja Valero, according to reports in The Sun.

Redknapp is not looking to break the bank in order to add strength in depth at White Hart Lane this winter, and the £9million price tag could be extremely tempting for North London club.

The former West Brom midfielder failed to settle in England and only featured 31 times in the league for the Baggies in his time in the midlands. After a successful loan spell; where Valero became a key player at El Madrigal; a permanent move to Spain was declared in the summer but Villarreal are struggling in the bottom half of La Liga and are out of all European competitions already.

With just one cap for Spain, Valero wants to be playing European football to catch the eye of national coach Vicente del Bosque and Tottenham could be the ideal suitors for the 26-year-olds attacking style of football.

Chelsea are expected to renew their interest in Luka Modric in January and with Spurs vying for three competitions when the new year begins, strength in depth may become a crucial aspect of success or failure.

    Really don’t see it, he’s not been very good at Villarreal, can’t see where or how he’d get in the Spurs team

    Pretty sure Spurs won’t be on a shopping spree in the january transfer. Unless a cracking deal like VdV or Parker is coming up..
    Spurs are saving for a new stadium.

    COYS!
