Tottenham Hotspur will find out their FA Cup fourth round opponents when the draw is made on Monday evening. 

The Lilywhites booked their place in the draw with a 1-0 win over fellow Premier League side Burnley in the third round on Friday night.

After a frustrating first half, the game looked to be heading for a draw and a replay before full-back Pedro Porro’s stunning strike earned Ange Postecoglou’s side a place in round four.

Spurs could be busy this month with the transfer window open, as Postecoglou could be looking to bolster his squad ahead of the second half of the season.

It appears, though, that the North London outfit are also prepared to sell one of their defenders.

According to Football Insider, Tottenham have put full-back Djed Spence up for sale after his loan spell with Leeds United was terminated.

Spence joined Tottenham from Middlesbrough in 2022

The right-back joined Spurs from Championship side Middlesbrough in 2022 after impressing while on loan at Nottingham Forest.

Spence played a crucial role in helping Steve Cooper’s side secure promotion to the Premier League at the end of the 2021/22 campaign, but his move to Tottenham hasn’t gone to plan.

After playing a total of just five minutes in the Premier League during the first half of last season, the 23-year-old was sent on loan to French side Rennes, where he made ten appearances across all competitions.

He returned to London last summer, before joining Leeds on loan ahead of the current campaign.

His time at Elland Road was also tough, though, with the Englishman missing several matches due to injury.

Spence made a total of seven appearances for Leeds in the Championship, and Whites boss Daniel Farke appeared to criticise the player when mentioning both ‘professionalism’ and ‘discipline’ and he has now returned to Tottenham once again.

The defender’s current contract isn’t set to expire until the summer of 2027, but the report claims that Spurs are keen to offload him in a bid to raise funds for Postecoglou.
