Midfielder required at White Hart Lane after Sandro injury.

Tottenham midfielder Jake Livermore will not be joining Queens Park Rangers on loan for the rest of the season after the White Hart Lane club cancelled the proposed move.

Livermore, who has played only 50 games for Tottenham in five years and who has been loaned out to six different clubs during that time, was due to link up with former boss Harry Redknapp at Loftus Road.

But the Daily Mirror report that Tottenham have called off the loan deal because they now require Livermore at White Hart Lane after Brazilian midfielder Sandro suffered knee ligament damage which is a season-ending injury.

Redknapp has brought in striker Loic Remy from Marseille with the French international making an instant impact last weekend, but he has struggled to make a breakthrough in his quest for new defenders and midfielders.

Interest in defensive targets William Gallas and Michael Dawson of Tottenham, Manchester City’s Joleon Lescott, Everton’s Sylvain Distin and West Brom’s Jonas Olsson has failed to result in a deal being struck, while Redknapp has also missed out on midfielders Yann M’Vila and Moussa Sissoko from France.
