Paul Robinson - over the line?

Pascal Chimbonda, Lee Young-Pyo, Anthony Gardner, Paul Stalteri, Wayne Routledge and Hossam Ghaly are also facing the boot.

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."

Ramos is fuming with his squad for a string of crazy results, with his priority a new keeper. Robinson's howler in the FA Cup clash with Reading, when he carried Stephen Hunt's free-kick into his own net, was the last straw.

Getafe's Argentina star Oscar Ustari, 21, is the top Ramos pick to take over. But he is also looking at Valencia's Tino Hildebrand and Bolton's Jussi Jaaskelainen.
