Spurs’ lack of action this transfer window must be seen as a positive, as the club revels in its strongest squad in a number of years.
White Hart Lane’s revolving doors have been remarkably quiet since the New Year, and it is likely to stay that way.
Premier League quiet
It is a fact not unique to Tottenham, however, with the window relatively quiet throughout the Premier League. Indeed, it is perhaps more of a surprise that their rivals for fourth place, in particular Manchester United, have done little themselves to strengthen.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino looks blissfully content with his squad, rendering it all the less probable that he will spend any significant money this month.
If anything, Tottenham are more likely to witness outgoings than players coming in. Andros Townsend has now completed his £12million move to Newcastle despite concerns it may not go ahead.
Lack of interest
Ordinarily, fans might be frustrated at the club’s apparent lack of interest in the market, but they will surely take comfort in the fact that there are very few areas in which Spurs would really benefit from buying anyone new.
Besides attempting a renewed bid for West Brom’s Saido Berahino, Spurs’ target list will be short. Rather than securing any high-profile signings, Pochettino may choose to bolster his squad with back-ups, and then reconsider the real areas to strengthen come May.
Until then, the Argentine will undoubtedly be grateful that he is not being stirred into action as he evaluates his side going into the business end of the season.
