Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp may have said he is looking to sign three new players before the start of the season but they will not be James Milner, Ashley Young or Phil Jagielka.
Milner has said he wants to leave Aston Villa, with Manchester City leading the hunt to sign him, while Martin O'Neill has hinted that Spurs are interested in Young.
Arsenal have been linked with Everton defender Jagielka but Redknapp was also said to be interested in the former Sheffield United star.
However, the Spurs boss told Sky Sports News:"Anybody would like James Milner, he's an outstanding young player, but he'd be way out of our depth.
"Again, I wouldn't think they'd want to sell Ashley Young. He is a good player but he belongs to Villa. We've not made any enquiries for him at all.
"I'm hoping Ledley (King) might be OK. His knee is swollen at the moment but it goes down so we will have to wait and see.
"Jagielka is good player again, an outstanding player, but we wouldn't be in the market for someone like that."
