Redknapp not looking to sign

Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp does not expect to augment his squad with any new signings in next month's transfer window.

Spurs boosted their top-four hopes with a straightforward 2-0 victory against West Ham United on Monday with Luka Modric and former Hammer Jermain Defoe on the scoresheet.

But Redknapp is content with his squad and is unlikely to bring a new striker to White Hart Lane even if, as seems likely, Russia international Roman Pavlyuchenko is sold in January.

The ex-West Ham boss said:"We're not looking at anybody (in the January transfer window). I cant stand here and say we've made contact with any clubs over any players.

"If players leave we'll see if we need to replace them and strengthen in areas, but there are no plans to at the moment."

Of the victory, he added:"It was a game we dominated but when you're only 1-0 up you fear that sooner or later they'll make a chance.

"We needed a second goal and eventually it came but overall we were stronger than them today, there's no doubt about that. We played well and were always in control.

"I've got a luxury that Gianfranco (Zola) hasn't – strong players to bring in who don't weaken your team in any way, shape or form. Whoever comes in at the moment is doing well and a fourth clean sheet in a row shows we're a force."
