Harry unlikely to buy in January

Redknapp signed only Brad Friedel, Scott Parker and Emmanuel

Adebayor over the summer but was trying to land Cahill right up

until the last day of the transfer window. However, the Spurs boss

believes he now has enough strength in depth at the back following

the return to fitness of William Gallas and Ledley King. “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.” Redknapp insists only untimely injuries to

key men will force him to look for new recruits. He explained:

“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.”
