Villas-Boas expects slow transfer window at Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur Head Coach Andre Villas-Boas has said not to expect his team to make any moves in the January transfer window, Sky Sports reports.

Villas-Boas, in his first season in charge at White Hart Lane, has said that, while chairman Daniel Levy has backed Villas-Boas to strengthen the team, the two have agreed that January may not be the time to do it. “You won't see Tottenham doing anything in the beginning of January, if we do anything,” Villas-Boas said.


Buying players early in the window makes a difference to the preparation in pre-season but, during the season, it doesn't have the same effect. I think we are comfortable with how things are.


Spurs are currently sitting fourth in the Premier League and are into the knockout stages of the Europa League, and Villas-Boas believes the return of injured players will allow his squad to deal with the increased fixtures in the new year. “We feel comfortable at the moment. Our squad will become big, even in terms of numbers, with the return of injured players. I believe that they will give us an extra edge.


I am not ruling out any situation in the market, but at the moment it looks unlikely, the Portuguese added.


Villas-Boas has, however, declared that reserve goalkeepers Heurelho Gomes, 31, and Carlo Cudicini, 39, may be allowed to leave the club. Both players are third in line for the No. 1 spot with Hugo Lloris and Brad Friedel the current first and second choices respectively. Villas-Boas says the club will “listen to proposals” for the back-up pair.
