Villas-Boas may keep Tottenham Hotspur chequebook in the drawer


Andre Villas-Boas is happy with his squad at Tottenham Hotspur.

The Portuguese coach succeeded the sacked Harry Redknapp at White Hart Lane in the summer, an appointment which split the opinions of the supporters. The former Porto coach, who won four trophies in one season at the Estadio Dragao, was a flop at Chelsea, where he fell out with a number of senior players last season.

However, Villas-Boas appears to be winning the majority of fans over. Winning at Manchester United for the first time in several years obviously helped his cause, whilst the 3-0 win at Fulham on Saturday afternoon keeps Spurs well on course for another top-four finish and the UEFA Champions League football that would bring.

It is believed Daniel Levy will make funds available for the January transfer window, as the North London club look to continue their progress. However, Villas-Boas is happy with his current squad options, especially as a number of senior first team players will soon return to bolster his selection considerations. 

"I don't think we need it (the transfer market), to be fair,” said the 35-year-old. "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. These will be major additions to our squad and we are happy to continue with this squad."
