While Spurs have been linked with a whole host of players in this transfer window so far, Harry Redknapp has suggested all the rumours are irrelevant as the club will have to sell before it can buy.
While some Spurs supporters may have been waiting for an injection of cash to get Tottenham challenging for Champions League football once again, Harry has indicated that there will be no movement until several players are
“There is nothing happening in the transfer market” Redknapp said.
“I need to sell four or five players to bring in funds.
“The chairman has made it clear we need to move a few players before we can start doing any business.

The club were keen to send the right message to supporters over Luka Modric recently but as messages go, has the recent news come as a surprise to fans who were expecting some moves before we got rid of the dead wood? Why do we need to sell before we can buy, when we were allegedly putting in £30m+ bids in for players in January?
