Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is unsure whether the club has funds in the kitty this summer to strengthen his squad.

Although Spurs reached the quarter-finals of this season's Champions League they will not be playing in Europe's elite club competition next term.

Tottenham's Premier League form has nose-dived despite excelling in Europe and Tuesday's 1-0 defeat to Manchester City means they cannot achieve a top-four finish.

Redknapp is known for splashing the cash in the transfer market having spent big in recent seasons, although he has hinted there will not be any major signings during the close-season.


However, Redknapp has revealed that he might be given some leeway in the transfer market should the club offload some of their fringe players.

"I don't know if we have any money to spend. We might not," said Redknapp.

"I have not asked the chairman. We will have to wait and see.

"If there isn't we will get on with it again and be strong next year.

"The only way we can do it is to shift a few in the summer and bring on or two in."
