Tottenham Hotspur became the first Premier League side ever not to make a single signing in the summer transfer window this season.
However, despite the lack of signings in both the summer and January, they have been able to keep a settled squad of first team players.
The likes of Toby Alderweireld, Danny Rose, Christian Eriksen, Heung Min Son, Dele Alli, Harry Kane and co are still at the club, something that is pivotal to their success.
Spurs will be determined to keep their first team stars as they enter their brand new stadium towards the end of the season.
Ex-Tottenham man Chris Waddle is confident that Harry Kane will be at Spurs this time next year, but is worried his head will eventually be turned if the club don’t start winning silverware.
He is also adamant that Tottenham must keep Christian Eriksen by offering him a new bumper deal, as he is irreplaceable in the market at the moment.
Waddle said (SportingBet): “Harry Kane won’t leave Tottenham this summer, but his head will eventually turn towards winning trophies.
“Real Madrid can practically guarantee that, as well as a very generous pay rise. He seems very settled at Tottenham and he’s enjoying his football, but when he looks back at his career he will want his goals to have secured medals.
“Kane will look at the future of Tottenham once they move into the new stadium and he’ll decide on his future from there. He can get in to any team in the world so Tottenham have to prove they’re the club he can lift trophies at.
“If Tottenham let Eriksen go, they won’t be able to replace him.
“He is a top player who anyone would be interested in signing and if Tottenham want to be seriously competing against the top clubs these are the types of players they need to keep hold of. Eriksen is vital to the club, especially as they move into their new stadium.
“Eriksen will know what he is worth and he is within his rights to demand it. Tottenham have had a lot tighter budget moving in to the new stadium and it would be a lot cheaper to give Eriksen what he wants than to go a spend a large sum of money trying to replace him.”
