Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has played down the importance of the January transfer window, insisting that he’s happy with his squad.

Spurs have been heavily linked with attacking talents such as Joao Moutinho, Loic Remy and Willian in recent months, with AVB thought to be keen to invest to boost the club’s Premier League chances.

However, the Portuguese coach insists that he is happy with the players at his disposal, and believes that there is no real need to bring in fresh faces in the New Year:

“I don’t think we need to do anything,” said Villas-Boas who was missing Clint Dempsey due to a groin injury.” He is quoted by Sky Sports.

“We have Clint out. He is a massive player for us. He has had a big impact. He scored 17 goals last season so we have to count on him.

“He plays striker, plays wings and plays through the middle so he gives us that option.

The Londoners were held at home to Stoke on Saturday, and despite the result, Villas-Boas was happy with his team’s performance:

“Stoke have one of the best defences in Europe and they are very well organised. They don’t make it easy for anyone,” he said.

“We gave them a run for their money and our players tried very hard.

“Sometimes you try everything and the ball doesn’t go in the back of the net. We had a go and I’m very pleased with the players.”

    If AVB really thinks this I’m worried

    This really worries me. Spurs desperately need a major signings just to liven up the team. We need to replace Modric with another player who can pull the strings in midfield because we simply don’t have one and we also need a third striker but it has to be a prolific goal scorer. Defoe is doing well but not consistent enough. Not always his fault as he does not always get the proper service plus his height has it’s restrictions. Adebayor drifts too wide for my liking and does not play where he should…In the middle. Having just Defoe and Adebayor is just not enough. Levy has had so many chances to bring in a quality striker and has failed so many times it is ridiculous. Sometimes for ths sake of an extra two million pounds he has refused to pay the price. Just look at Dalmiao. How may windows have we been looking at him but never ever bid what he is worth. You aint gonna get a player like him for £12 million pounds. Levy bought in AVB at the expense of Redknapp so he needs to show that he is really backing him instead of hiding behind his wallet. If you are not going to do it then get out and let someone who will.
