Aaron Lennon is the subject of surprise interest from Everton, with the midfielder reportedly coming to an agreement with the club to make a loan move until the end of the season.
Lennon has been at the top of a number of side's wishlists in the lead-up to deadline day, with Harry Redknapp reportedly hoping to take him to QPR while Stoke were also in with a big chance on the last day of the transfer window.
But as the clock ticks closer to 11pm Everton have emerged as surprise contenders, with the BBC claiming that Roberto Martinez is hoping to make Lennon his only incoming of the month after letting go of five players (three on loan).
Lennon is one of a number of players who were set for a definite exit from Tottenham in the lead-up to deadline day, but the day has proved to be rather quiet with Emmanuel Adebayor reportedly rejecting a number of offers to leave White Hart Lane while Etienne Capoue has also turned down the possibility of leaving the side.
One of the problems for Spurs at present is their attempts to cut their wage bill have proven fruitless, with a lot of their older players enjoying contracts which allow them to decide between playing time and a comfortable wage.
But Lennon is believed to be very interested in playing for Everton this season and the news site reports that a deal has been agreed between all parties with the paperwork now the only hurdle in a deal.
Reports are also rife that Lennon rejected Hull because he wants to play for a side who will stay in the Premier League. The deal won't be permanent but it would appear that if he settles at Goodison Park it could head in that direction.
