Tottenham signings impress Redknapp

Published Add your comment

Former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has praised the club's summer recruitment drive following the close of the transfer window on Monday evening.

Spurs, now under the management of Portuguese Andre Villas-Boas, have been extremely active in the market this summer, significantly bolstering their squad with no fewer than seven new signings. 

In addition to Brazilian international Paulinho and former Valencia striker Roberto Soldado, Villas-Boas and club chairman Daniel Levy managed to secure additional deals for French midfielder Etienne Capoue, Belgian starlet Nacer Chadli, Romanian defender Vlad Chiriches, gifted Ajax playmaker Christian Eriksen and Roma's Erik Lamela. 

And while Redknapp concedes that it may take time for the new signings to integrate themselves within the squad, he was evidently impressed with the quality of the players moving to White Hart Lane. 

“They have bought some good players," the current QPR boss told talkSPORT. "“They have got a fantastic squad now - it’s as strong a squad as any in the Premier League.

"Whether it is the right gel and they can play together, only time will tell, but certainly, individually, they have got an amazing group of players.

"They have got so much strength in depth. You look at the centre-halves now. Younes Kaboul is fit, he is a fantastic player, but where is he going to play?

"You have got competition everywhere. It is going to be interesting," he added. 

A number of Spurs' new contingent were brought to the club with the imminent departure of winger Gareth Bale firmly in mind.

The Welsh star, who became only the third player to be named both PFA Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year in April after a truly stunning individual campaign, finally completed his world-record move to Real Madrid at the weekend.
