Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp believes the north London club will stick with the current squad and will go through another transfer window without making any new signings.

Spurs failed to bring in any new additions during the summer making them the first club in Premier League history not to make a single signing since the introduction of the transfer window system in 2002.

Tottenham came under fire from fans and pundits alike for failing to add to their squad before the start of the current season but Mauricio Pochettino is getting the best out of what he has at his disposal with the club sitting third in the league table.

With the move into the new stadium on the horizon, it is feared that the manager’s transfer kitty has been swallowed up by the new build and he may have to sell before he can reinvest in the squad.

But former Spurs boss Redknapp, who once guided them to a Champions League quarter-final, says he would not be surprised if his former club did not make any new signings during the January transfer window.

“I’ve got a feeling, I don’t think they will [sign any new players]” the 71-year-old told talkSPORT.

“I had heard they were interested in the boy who has gone to Chelsea [Christian Pulisic, who signed for the Blues this week for £58million], he was on their radar at one time but he was too expensive.

“So no, I don’t think they will.

“I think they might stick with what they’ve got and go with that.”

Redknapp has also urged Pochettino to go for a cup competition this season as Spurs are through to the FA Cup fourth round after beating Tranmere 7-0 on Friday night.

Tottenham, who have not won a trophy since 2008, are also through to the semi-finals of the League Cup and are in the last-16 of the Champions League.

“I know it’s all become about the top four now,” Redknapp added, “and even in the quarter-finals teams put half a reserve team out. It’s just gone crazy.

“But I think it would be nice to see Tottenham win a trophy this year.

Spurs face Chelsea on Tuesday night in the semi-finals on the EFL Cup before returning to Premier League action on January 13 when they host Manchester United.
