Speaking on Absolute Radio before the weekend, Spurs manager Harry Redknapp said that it was unlikely that he would be bringing in any new faces to White Hart Lane this winter.
Rumours have persisted in the press, most of them suggesting that Tottenham will be looking for a new striker at the very least, but Harry claims that the current form of the side means that there is no need for reinforcements.
“I haven’t got anybody I could stand here and say ‘Yeah, we want to get him’,” Harry said. “It’s so difficult, where do you play them?
“You’ve got people like Sandro can’t get in the mid-field, he’s in the Brazilian team, so it’s not easy.
“There’s no one out there I… I mean, there’s players but you’re not going to get them, the top players, but I don’t really see where I’m going to improve us too much with the players that might be available.”
Harry also attempted to end the David Beckham rumours once and for all,
“I enjoyed having David here when he came and trained, and he’s a fantastic professional, great buy, but again it would be difficult,” Harry added
“I couldn’t bring David in and say ‘Well you’re going to play every week’ because it would be difficult. I’ve got Aaron Lennon playing well, we’re not short there really, so it would be a problem.”
So Harry is adamant but that won’t stop the rumours continuing. Overall, is he right in his assessment or should the club be scouting for reinforcements in January?
