Tottenham will wait until the summer to land Crystal Palace winger Wayne Routledge.Tottenham Hotspur have accepted that they will have to wait until the summer to land Crystal Palace winger Wayne Routledge.
The North London outfit, who have been the busiest Premiership club during the transfer window, have had two bids for Routledge rejected by The Eagles.
Routledge is out of contract in the summer and appears unlikely to remain at Selhurst Park, but Palace want him to finish the season with them.
"With Routledge I am happy to leave it until the summer," admitted Spurs coach Martin Jol.
"I have been able to bring in more than I thought and no one will leave, we need as many options as possible.
"People talk about young players needing time to settle but if Routledge can play for Palace, he could play for us.
"He is young but a regular guy. He could cope, but you never know."
