Tottenham captain Ledley King is expected to face some time on the sidelines after injuring his hamstring in the Spurs' 1-1 draw with Portsmouth.
Manager Harry Redknapp confirmed the injury on Sky Sports 1.
"You saw today we picked up a few injuries. Ledley is going to be out for the long term so we need to strengthen the squad," Redklnapp said.
King had to be replaced by Michael Dawson during the first half.
