New Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has planned to return to the transfer market once her knows which areas of his squad he needs to strengthen, according to Sky Sports.
Speaking to the press after his sides 2-0 victory over Stevenage, in which both Jan Vertonghen and Gylfi Sigurdsson made their debuts, the Portuguese has indicated that their may be little in the way of new signings for now, admitting that due to the size of the squad, players may need to be sold, in order to make space for eventual new arrivals.
“We have started assessing the squad. We have got a big squad.”
He continued, “We have had a lot of interest in our players, but I think it is the time to make the right decisions and we use these games to make those decisions.”
“I think the team is going in the right direction, but we want to make it stronger. Eventually we will go to the market when we think it is appropriate. There will not be a lot of changes, but steadily we will bring in players.”
Villas-Boas also suggested that it would take a considerable offer for the club to let go of want away play-maker Luka Modric, who is attracting Spanish giants Real Madrid.
