A transfer statement of intent wanted at Tottenham

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has stated that he wants the club to make some bold signings once the transfer window reopens.

Spurs are currently in fourth place, and need a win against Fulham on Sunday to ensure a place in next season’s Champions League; Redknapp is already eyeing a busy summer.

“We’re a good side. If we’re bold in the summer, we can build a team again that can be right there again next year,” the manager told Sky Sports.

“The league is changing and a top-four position is very difficult to achieve.”

The White Hart Lane side have suffered a dip in form of late, and with a court case to defend himself against tax evasion charges and health issues this season, Redknapp has admitted that he is looking forward to a well-deserved break.

“I’ll be glad when next week is over. It’s been a long old season.

“I just want to get in the Champions League and have a break and get away for a few days.

“It has been a hard year for me personally. What I went through with the court case was the most difficult thing I’ve ever faced in my life.

“It definitely takes a strain on you. I do tend to get on with things but there’s no doubt it has an effect,” he concluded.
