After Daniel Levy’s statement on Thursday, Harry Redknapp has declared he is happy with the squad he has currently and doesn’t feel the need to buy anyone in January.

Spurs have been linked with a large number of players, but with the squad currently sitting in fourth position, Redknapp has agreed with his chairman that no splurge on players is necessary.

“I don’t think we need any more players – the same view as the chairman.

“We’ve said that all along. I’m happy with the squad. If I can keep everybody fit, we haven’t got any problems in terms of wanting to bring anybody into the club really.

“The only way we’d bring in anybody in is if we sold somebody and we maybe wanted to use that money to bring another player in.

“But we’re not really looking to make any changes, we’re happy with the squad.

“We’ve got four central defenders, we’ve got four good strikers, we’re strong in all positions really.

“We’ve got a couple of players on loan that we could bring back, so we’re not really in the market for players.”

One player that has looked likely to depart in January is Roman Pavlyuchenko.

The Russian has made it known that he is unhappy with his first team opportunities, but Redknapp is still reluctant to allow him to move on.

“Well I think Pav, I think his people have come over from Russia to meet with the chairman and discuss the possibility of him moving.

“But we’re not keen to sell him. He’s here and we need all our good players around us.

“We’ve got a tough second half of the season, into the New Year, five games coming up before the 1st of January as well.

“So we need everyone available and he’s a quality player. We’ve got him, we’ve got Crouchy, We’re got Robbie and we’ve got Jermain Defoe – we’re very fortunate to have four good strikers.”
