Ryan Nelsen believes West Ham have issued a statement of intent by tying Winston Reid to a new deal.
Tottenham are keen for striker Shaquile Coulthirst to continue his development out on loan after his spell at Southend.
Montpellier have yet to receive an approach from Tottenham for Younes Belhanda, but admit they would be open to an offer.
The Morocco international has been linked with a move to England for some time, with Arsenal also reported to hold an interest in the midfielder.
It was, however, looking increasingly likely that Belhanda would be on his way to Turkey once Fenerbahce entered the chase during the current transfer window.
No deal has been put in place, though, and Montpellier are still looking for a buyer.
They are prepared to move Belhanda on in order to bring in much-needed funds and club chairman Louis Nicollin admits he would be prepared to talk with Spurs were they to make a move.
"Tottenham's interest? There has been nothing official as yet, but I would like there to be," said Nicollin in L'Equipe.
"If a good offer arrives, he will leave. We can live without him and he can live without us."
On discussions with Fenerbahce, he added: "Nothing has evolved. They wanted to pay us in three instalments. They can keep their money."
