Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has said he wants to sign two new players in the January transfer window.
The Spurs boss also expressed his surprise at his side’s current form and league placing but insisted they still have a chance at becoming Barclays Premier League champions.
However, the former West Ham United manager believes he will need to sign another two players to have a chance of achieving this goal.
“If you'd told me six months ago that my Spurs side would be right in the mix for the title, I'd have laughed,” he said in his column in The Sun.
“And if we could find a couple of new faces to improve us even further over the next month, then who knows where this season could take us?”
The White Hart Lane chief revealed that he will not just sign anyone and would only bring in a player who would improve the team – easier said than done.
“The problem we have now when we look for players is that the better you get, the more difficult it is to find someone who will take you even higher,” he added.
“Believe me, there aren't that many out there - but we won't fall down on that score through a lack of looking.”
Redknapp admitted he thinks Tottenham have a chance at prevailing come May, but insisted his side were long shots outside the current top two.
“I'm not about to say the Premier League is coming to Tottenham because there are still so many who could have a big say,” he concluded.
“And it doesn't take a genius to point out that Manchester City are still red-hot favourites, while anyone ready to write off United needs their head looking at.”
Spurs begin their FA Cup campaign tomorrow against League Two side Cheltenham Town at 3:00pm.
