Harry Redknapp has revealed that Tottenham are unlikely to make any additional signings when the transfer window reopens in January, despite suffering a number of defensive injury problems already this season.

With Michael Dawson currently ruled out with an Achilles injury, and William Gallas yet to feature at White Hart Lane this campaign, the Spurs boss has been linked with moves for Manchester United's Rio Ferdinand, as well as a renewed attempt to sign Bolton's Gary Cahill.

But with the return to fitness of club captain Ledley King, and both Gallas and Dawson making steady progress as they continue their rehabilitation, Redknapp insists that he is happy with the squad at his disposal.

"I'm hoping that Michael Dawson comes back," he told talkSPORT breakfast. "He's got this Achilles injury. Hopefully we will get a decision on him this week. He's going for another scan on that.

"William Gallas is coming back now as well. He did a fantastic job for us last season and, if I get them lads fit, we are okay it's not a problem.

"Other than that I wouldn't know where to bring anyone else in. We are pretty strong all over the pitch."

Another player that Tottenham have been recently linked with is a loan move for troubled Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez - but Redknapp admits the club would struggle to finance the deal.

"What a player he would be on loan but I think his wages are going to be a problem for anyone to take him," he concluded. "It's going to be a massive club only that can pay him £200,000 a week."
