Redknapp rules out January signings
Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp has revealed he will not make any signings in January after boasting about the strength of his squad.
In the absence of key midfielders Luka Modric and Rafael van der Vaart, Spurs claimed their ninth win in ten league matches against West Brom on Saturday - a triumph that proved the quality of their fringe players.
And Redknapp sees no reason to bring in any new faces, with Tottenham sitting just six points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City.
"As it stands, I'm not looking to bring anyone into the club in January," he said. "I was initially concerned about injuries to some of our defenders, which left us light on the ground. But with William Gallas and Ledley King returning, those concerns have subsided.
"To be honest, we have a very strong squad, one of the best in the Premier League, so I wouldn't know where to bring in players that would improve us, as we are pretty strong all over the pitch. There is absolutely no point in going out and signing players if they can't improve the team. And, as it is, I have enough strength in depth in my squad."
However, if Gallas and King - a notoriously injury-prone pair - fail to maintain their fitness, Redknapp concedes he may be forced into a rethink.
He added: "What I can't legislate for is injuries and that is the only time I would possibly look at bringing someone into the club. Yet, even then, it would have to be something serious to make me reconsider.
"I can't fault the players I have. We are on a tremendous run and the players we have bought in during the summer like Scott Parker and Emmanuel Adebayor have improved us and taken us to another level.
"This is the strongest squad I've had under my control and we're not just looking at challenging for the top four, why shouldn't we consider being title contenders? It's a tough ask, with the likes of Manchester City and United, but if they slip up, we're capable of taking advantage."
