Tottenham have sealed the signing of Louis Saha on a short-term deal from Everton to keep him at White Hart Lane until the end of the season.
Both clubs confirmed the news late on transfer deadline day, according to Sky Sports.

"Striker Louis Saha has left Everton to join Tottenham Hotspur," said a statement on evertonfc.com.

The 33-year-old had six months remaining on his current deal but has been allowed to move to White Hart Lane after making 20 appearances this season, scoring just twice.
Saha was not included on the teamsheet for the Toffees' 1-0 Premier League win over Manchester City on Tuesday.
He joined Everton on a free transfer from Manchester United in 2008 having previously played for Fulham and Newcastle.
Saha scored 15 goals in the 2009-10 campaign but has had numerous fitness issues since and the arrival of Nikica Jelavic meant he was surplus to requirements at Goodison Park.
Speaking of the striker after Tottenham's 3-1 victory over Wigan on Tuesday evening, Harry Redknapp told Sky Sports News: "I like Saha.
"He's got good movement, can score goals but probably needs a change. He's out of contract at the end of the year so David Moyes has let him go.
"I can remember speaking to Rio Ferdinand and he said he was the best forward he'd played against."

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp also revealed that he could add Blackburn defender Ryan Nelsen to his squad.

Nelsen would replace fellow centre-back Sebastien Bassong, who has long stated his desire to leave Spurs and was left out of the club's 3-1 win over Wigan on Tuesday night.

The Spurs boss revealed the centre-half was the subject of a bid from Wolves before Tuesday night's transfer deadline and hopes to replace him by completing the shock signing of veteran Nelsen from Ewood Park.

Redknapp said: "Bassong could maybe go on loan to Wolves. I think that's going to happen.

"We just need to see whether I can take another central defender because I've got William Gallas out long-term through injury.

"I'm hoping to sign Ryan Nelsen on a free until the end of the season. I think he's a great competitor and a good sort to have at your club. Always liked him.

"Seb needs to go - his head's down."
