Assou-Ekotto, part of Cameroon’s squad at last year’s World Cup, has not featured for Spurs this season, having spent last term on loan at Queens Park Rangers.

The 30-year-old left back joined Tottenham in 2006 and made 204 appearances, featuring in the club’s run to the quarter-finals of the Champions League in 2010-11.
