Tottenham have reportedly decided that they will not allow Dele Alli to leave the club on loan or on a permanent transfer agreement this January.
The England international has largely lost favor with Spurs manager José Mourinho this season, but it looks like he could still have a role to play in the second half of the campaign.
According to Sky sports, Tottenham is unwilling to let Alli go as he challenged in four different competitions this season.
It seems clear that Alli could play an important role in Mourinho’s team should he sustain an injury, so this is probably a sensible move for North Londoners.
Of course, it remains to be seen how easy it will be to retain the 24-year-old, who may want more regular first-team action and might have some tempting offers.

The Argentine got the best out of Alli during his time at Tottenham, so it could be a move that goes well for both.
However, it seems likely that the Spurs will do their best to avoid this possible move in January.
