Spurs boss expects to enjoy quiet January

Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp claims to have no intention of dipping into the transfer market when the window re-opens in January. The Spurs boss is usually among the busier Premier League coaches during the summer and New Year, with players moved in and out of White Hart Lane. Redknapp has overseen a squad transformation during his time with the North London outfit, with Tottenham once again challenging for a top-four finish. It could be argued that they are still in this season's title race, with five straight wins taking them to within six points of league leaders Manchester City. It was expected that Redknapp would look to further bolster his ranks in January to help Spurs push on into 2012, but he insists he has no plans to bring in fresh faces. "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." With the likes of Gallas and King set to return to the Spurs ranks, 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."
