O'Hara and Dos Santos loaned out
We have completed the signing of former Chelsea and Barcelona forward Eidur Gudjohnsen on a loan deal from Monaco for the end of the season.
The 31-year-old Icelander, who also attracted interest from London rivals West Ham, underwent a medical and agreed terms on the move on Thursday.
"He's a player I've always admired," said boss Harry Redknapp. "He can play several positions and is very clever.
"It was his decision to come to us. He said 'I want to come to Tottenham'."
West Ham had been confident of arranging a deal after Gudjohnsen underwent a medical at the club but Harry convinced him to opt for the Lane.
"I rang him and left a message on his phone and he came back to me and said 'I want to come to Tottenham'," said Redknapp. "He gives us lots of options. He is a top player."
Gudjohnsen will provide cover for a number of positions as they look to push for a top-four finish.
Gudjohnsen has won League titles in England, Holland and Spain, and was an unused substitute for Barcelona when they won the Champions League final in 2009.
Meanwhile thw club has rejected an offer for Pavlyuchenko from Birmingham while Jamie O'Hara has re-joined Portsmouth on loan and Giovani Dos Santos hasd been loaned out to Galatassaray in Turkey.
The Club is still in talks over Younes Kaboul and goalkeeper Asmir Begovic of Portsmouth.
