Tottenham have enjoyed their busiest summer in the transfer market for some time but amid concerns over cover at the back, Head coach Andre Villas-Boas insists that the spending spree isn’t over yet.
Spurs have let Steven Caulker move on to Cardiff and that followed William Gallas’ release from the club. However, with Younes Kaboul returning to fitness following injury and Etienne Capoue capable of filling in at centre back if necessary, the focus has shifted to the left side of defence.
“At the moment we need to strengthen at the back but this is a decision we haven’t yet taken bearing in mind the development of a player like Ezekiel Fryers,” AVB told talkSPORT.
“This is a consideration we still have to make. We’ll keep monitoring transfers in and out and do our business when appropriate.”
As we discussed earlier today, it seems likely that Benoit Assou-Ekotto is the odd man out as far as the coach is concerned and with Danny Rose starting the game against Crystal Palace, it may be that Zeki Fryers is the man to cover that position. But do Spurs need further reinforcements at the back or is the defence effectively sorted?
