Tottenham Hotspur have missed an opportunity to push on to compete for trophies due to their lack of transfer activity, according to Jamie Redknapp.

Tottenham became the first Premier League side not to sign a player in a summer transfer window since it was introduced in 2003.

The former Spurs midfielder believes that the club have taken a step backwards by not looking to strengthen the current squad.

While he still thinks that Tottenham will finish in the top four this season ahead of Arsenal and Chelsea, they should have kicked on and tried to compete with the likes of Manchester City for the Premier League title.

He told Sky Sports: “Tying down Kane and Son to new contracts was a good move by chairman Daniel Levy. And there’s no question that, of the top six, Spurs are the ones who didn’t have a really clear area they had to strengthen in this window.

But ultimately I think this summer, in terms of their transfer dealings, has been a step backwards.”
