Tottenham’s Harry Redknapp reiterates that he will only spend in the transfer window if a ‘special’ player is available

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has reiterated that it is unlikely he will spend in the transfer window unless a “very special” player becomes available.

Spurs start the new year sat in third place in the Premier League table and Redknapp says he is happy with the strength of his squad.

The 64-year-old is well known for his forays into the transfer market but admitted that if a player was available that could improve his side he might be tempted to open the chequebook.

“It’s extremely unlikely we will be doing any business in this window,” he told the Sunday Mirror.

“Unless someone very special came on the market, someone that could improve the team, I’ll stick with what I have.

“We have a very strong squad and cover for virtually every position. It’s hard to see where we can improve.”

Redknapp is also adamant that he will not be selling any key players in the transfer window and is tired of constant speculation linking Luka Modric and Gareth Bale with moves away from White Hart Lane.

He added: “You hang around listening to rubbish about this player and that player leaving. I mean, we are hardly likely to weaken our squad by selling some of our best players, are we?

“If it’s not Luka Modric going, it’s Gareth Bale or someone else. We are not in the market to sell players and speculation is unhelpful and disruptive.

“And then you are linked to 100 players you have never heard of, let alone have any intention of buying.”
