Nearly everyone who has a remote interest in football knows that Tottenham have not added a single player to their squad in the last two transfer windows.

While Mauricio Pochettino’s men have competed valiantly regardless, the lack of squad depth seems to have eventually caught up with the team.

With the other teams around them improving, there is a serious need for investment into the squad going into next season particularly given that it will be Tottenham’s first full season at their new stadium.

There are fears however that the escalated cost of building the stadium due to repeated delays has affected Tottenham’s ability to invest into the squad.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has apparently squashed those fears and insisted that the transfer funds will not be affected by the £637 million debt that the club has incurred.

The Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust recently met the Spurs board and published the notes from the meeting.

In the notes, it is revealed that the Tottenham chairman said that the reason the club didn’t sign any new players in the last two transfer windows was because the market wasn’t as liquid as the club had hoped and because other factors didn’t fall into place with both ins and outs.

While this information will be reassuring for Spurs fans, we still have to wait and see if Levy is prepared to loosen his purse strings in the summer.
