Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has admitted that the January transfer window is “difficult” but maintains that he has no plans to sell any of the clubs’ key players this month or in the summer.
Levy has been received both criticism and praise for his handing of Spurs in the past few seasons, however one thing that many seem to agree on is how much the star players in North London are being paid.
Danny Rose came out in the summer to say that he felt as though the club were leaving him and his team-mates short-changed in comparison to other top teams in the Premier League.
The Independent has recently reported that Levy is looking to sort out the futures of both Harry Kane and Toby Alderweireld as soon as possible while breaking his own tradition and offering the first-team duo much more money.
Now, the Spurs chairman has revealed that his strategy with the club is to help manager Mauricio Pochettino improve his team whenever he sees fit, but admits that it may be hard to do this month.
“I’m 100% confident. Every single player that we want to keep, I can assure you will be playing for Tottenham Hotspur next season,” he said, as quoted by Sky Sports on their live transfer blog on Thursday [12:27pm].
“Mauricio’s strategy has always been that if an opportunity arises that he thinks can improve the squad then we will need to look at it, but January is always a very difficult window.”
Spurs were the last team in the Premier League to make a signing in the summer before welcoming Davinson Sanchez, Paulo Gazzaniga, Juan Foyth, Serge Aurier and Fernando Llorente in a late flurry of activity.
They are yet to sign up anyone this month though, however there are still almost three weeks left to do any business.
