Speaking on the Done Deal Show, journalist Dean Jones has suggested that Tottenham may look to make further moves in the transfer window after sealing the signing of Djed Spence.
Spence eventually completed his move to Spurs on Tuesday morning, closing a transfer saga that has rolled on for weeks due to valuation differences between Middlesbrough and the Lilywhites (SkySports).
The 21-year-old, who impressed whilst on loan at Nottingham Forest last season, becomes Spurs’ sixth signing of the summer transfer window.
With the arrivals of Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster for free, Clement Lenglet on loan, and a combined total outlay of around £91 million for Richarlison, Yves Bissouma and Spence (Transfermarkt), there could still be a sizeable chunk of the club’s £150 million cash investment available (Mirror).
Jones claims that the remainder of the summer transfer window could be a chance for Daniel Levy and Fabio Paratici to unearth new opportunities.
He said (Done Deal Show): “What’s key to point out here is that Tottenham had six key positions and targets they wanted to tie up and Djed Spence will be number six.
“That is their key business done and I was always told once that business is done that you can’t rule out the idea that at the back end of the window a couple of luxury signings are made.
“Tottenham are traditionally always in that market at the back end of the window.”

I’m really excited at the prospect of seeing Spence in action this season. I have a feeling that Antonio Conte is going to turn him into a machine in the right wing-back position.
As for further transfers, if a player becomes available who would complete our squad, such as a creative midfielder or another centre-back, I hope that Levy pulls the trigger.
