Redknapp in no hurry to splash cash

The Spurs boss has handed a wish-list to chairman Daniel Levy over players he wants in January.

Redknapp said: “Without a doubt the squad needs strengthening if we’re going to be where people expect us to be.

“I’ve spoken to the chairman and he accepts that. He has to, that’s why he brought me in.

“Hopefully he thinks I know what I’m talking about and I wouldn’t just spend his money for the sake of it.

“I know the players I want. I’ve got a list of players and it’s not like four for one position.

“So, if we can’t get exactly those players, then we might get some loans in to make sure we can get through the season then we’ll look again in the summer.”
