White Hart Lane unwanted to move clubs.
Tottenham Hotspur duo David Bentley and Alan Hutton are set to leave the club with respective moves to West Ham United and Aston Villa.
Spurs are desperate to shift a few fringe players out of the club in order to keep the wage bill down and get in a few new faces.
So far the only deadline day addition the north Londoners have made is to sign Scott Parker from the Hammers in a £5million deal.
West Ham in turn have agreed a season-long loan move for Bentley, as they seek an immediate return to the Premier League.
The 27-year-old has endured three miserable years at the club he supported as a boy and will jump at the chance to restart his career.
Hutton has been given permission to speak to Aston Villa by Tottenham and will leave the Scotland squad to discuss terms with Villains boss Alex McLeish.
A £3million deal has been agreed between the clubs, with the the 26-year-old just left to discuss personal terms and undergo a medical.
Villa are also trying to persuade Spurs to let them have midfielder Jermaine Jenas on-loan for the season after failing in a bid for Joe Cole.
