Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has let Spurs fans know that the club is not sitting on its laurels after signing Toby Alderweireld. Speaking to the Standard the Spurs boss has indicated that more signings, and departures, are set to come, though perhaps not until the end of the month.
"The window will be reasonably busy. We have already brought in four new players since the winter window and we've done deals for players who have now left.
"At the moment it is fairly relaxed. I would anticipate that as the window goes on, the activity will happen in the last two weeks but we are trying to business early where we can."
It's both delightful and a little shocking how much business Tottenham Hotspur has done so early in the transfer window, considering how Levy is known as a shrewd last minute negotiator. It's just over a week since the window formally opened, and Spurs have already signed Kevin Wimmer, Kieran Trippier, and Toby Alderweireld (One assumes the fourth signing Levy refers to is Dele Alli, signed in January). Heading the other direction are Paulinho and Etienne Capoue, with rumors that Benjamin Stambouli will quickly follow.
Spurs are still in desperate need of a central midfielder and are also likely in the hunt for a striker to spell Harry Kane, plus whatever other targets of opportunity come their way. This is a refreshing change from the madness that usually accompanies deadline day at White Hart Lane, though Levy's comments seem to indicate that we could be in for some more last minute surprises. Hold on to your butts!
