No more signings for Spurs


Harry Redknapp does not expect he will need to reinforce his Tottenham squad when the transfer window reopens in January.

Spurs are currently flying high in the Barclays Premier League, sitting in third place after a haul of 28 points from their opening 12 fixtures.

Unsurprisingly Redknapp is perfectly happy with his current crop of players after their recent exploits, and believes they can continue to build on their impressive start to the campaign.

"As it stands, I'm not looking to bring anyone into the club in January," said the Spurs boss.

"I was initially concerned about injuries to some of our defenders, which left us light on the ground. But with William Gallas and Ledley King returning, those concerns have subsided.

"To be honest, we have a very strong squad, one of the best in the Premier League, so I wouldn't know where to bring in players that would improve us, as we are pretty strong all over the pitch.

"There is absolutely no point in going out and signing players if they can't improve the team. And, as it is, I have enough strength in depth in my squad."

No winter additions for Spurs will come as a surprise of sorts, with White Hart Lane becoming a hub of transfer activity since Redknapp became manager in 2008.

But, says Redknapp, the shrewd summer acquisitions of Emmanuel Adebayor and Scott Parker mean Spurs have no need to dip into the market in the New Year.

"I can't fault the players I have," he added.

"We are on a tremendous run and the players we have bought in during the summer like Scott Parker and Emmanuel Adebayor have improved us and taken us to another level.

"This is the strongest squad I've had under my control and we're not just looking at challenging for the top four, why shouldn't we consider being title contenders?"
