Three Tottenham summer signings are angling to leave already this month.

The Mirror says three of the players bought during the £100million spending spree six months ago want out, while Lewis Holtby, who was signed last January, is poised for a return to Germany with former club Schalke.

French midfielder Etienne Capoue - signed for £9m from Toulouse - has already decided he has had enough of the north Londoners and has indicated he is up for a move, with Italian side Napoli interested.

Erik Lamela, Tottenham's £30m record signing, remains unsettled, despite the north Londoners' refusal to sanction a loan deal to either Inter Milan or Atletico Madrid.

And Belgian Nacer Chadli, who has started only one game since Tim Sherwood took over from sacked Andre Villas-Boas, is also keen to seek first-team action elsewhere.
