Tottenham boss Juande Ramos has drawn up a shortlist of eight players he wants offloaded this month, it has been revealed.

The Sun says along with Jermain Defoe, England's calamity keeper Robinson. Pascal Chimbonda, Lee Young-Pyo, Anthony Gardner, Paul Stalteri, Wayne Routledge and Hossam Ghaly are also facing the boot.

Axe man Ramos has already started telling the players their fate, having made it clear to chairman Daniel Levy he cannot rely on the squad he inherited from Martin Jol.

And Levy has no choice but to back his new boss, just a week after declaring: "Spurs are not a selling club."
