Dave Beasant Spurs reserve keeper, signed as cover during a period of injury in 2001-02 also was at Wigan a year after leaving the Lane, playing one game for the Latics in the Leyland DAF Trophy in 2002.
Mark Bowen Welsh defender, who played 20 games for Spurs before moving to Norwich City and ended his career with a spell playing seven games at the JJB stadium in 1999.
Michael Brown Combative midfielder, who joined Spurs from Sheffield United in January 2004 and did a good job adding some bite to the Spurs side of the time, but left to join Fulham in 2006, before moving on to Wigan in July 2007.
Pascal Chimbonda Signed from French club Bastia, full back Chimbonda stayed at Wigan Athletic for one season, scoring twice in 37 appearances and left under a cloud after handing his transfer request in soon after leaving the Highbury pitch on the last day of the 2005-06 season.  Joined Spurs in that summer after protracted negotiations and has settled into the Tottenham side.
Erik Edman Signed from Heerenveen in Holland in the summer of 2007, Edman was a quick, hard tackling full back, with an adventurous nature.  Scored a stunning 40 yard goal at Anfield, but left after just a year, when he joined Rennes in France.  Brought back to England by Wigan in 2008, Erik suffered a serious knee injury in his first few games and took a year to come back to playing.

Colin Lee Signed in 1977 as a striker, Lee was at Spurs until 1980 and joined the Lancashire club as a coach for a couple of months in December 2001-January 2002.
Wilson Palacios Signed from Olympia in Honduras for 550,000, the midfielder was snapped up by Spurs after less than a year in the country and cost a whopping 12,000,000.  Left after a couple of seasons to join Stoke City.
Gareth Whalley Trialist at Spurs, he played a couple of pre-season games, but was not signed permanently, but did get a contract with the Lactics after that.
