With January fast approaching, transfer rumours are already gathering pace and tradition usually insists that Spurs are firmly in the frame for new faces.
However, the club are expecting the return of some long term injury victims soon and head coach Andre Villas-Boas has suggested that Spurs would not be looking to add to a fully fit squad. AVB has done without Scott Parker since the beginning of the campaign while Younes Kaboul and Benoit Assou-Ekotto were early casualties.
With the trio looking to return to action shortly, Andre claims he is happy with the current squad.
“We have three top players coming back from injury that played most of the games last season – Younes Kabul, Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Scott Parker,” AVB told Sky Sports.
“These will be major additions to our squad and we are happy to continue with this squad.”
AVB wouldn’t be the first Tottenham manager to put up a smokescreen ahead of the window but his assertions may be easier to believe. Do we need to strengthen and if so in which areas? If we don’t buy are we gambling on this squad staying fully fit until May?
