Christmas is coming. Jingle All the Way has already been on television twice and it’s now a mish-mash of Coca-Cola and perfume adverts right up until the big day.

Children up and down the country are preparing their Christmas wishlists to inform Chris Cringle of their material desires, while Premier League managers will be writing similar lists to their transfer departments, stating which players they expect to be at their disposal after the new year.

At Tottenham, Andre Villas-Boas will be writing to new Technical Director Franco Baldini, the man who orchestrated the North London outfit’s £110million transfer spend in the summer.

But with Football FanCast being like the rather impatient younger sibling that cant wait for the 25th of December and spends the weeks preceding scouring their parents’ wardrobes for anything that might in some way resemble a present, we’ve decided to give you a sneak preview to the FIVE players the Spurs gaffer wants Baldini to grab for him in January.
