Tottenham must sell players to fund new signings

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has revealed that any new signings in the transfer window must be funded by the sale of current members of the squad.

At the Annual General Meeting Levy said: "We do not envisage being very active in the transfer window, but will take note of opportunities that arise.

"That is with the proviso that we do not envisage any net spending."

Skipper Robbie Keane had been linked with Celtic but Levy said there would be "no disruption to the core team."

Levy continued: "Having a settled squad gives us the best chance for consistency.

"We are striving for top-level displays, including the ability to take on and beat the so-called top-four teams."


Levy, who replaced Sir Alan Sugar as chairman in 2001, recently outlined plans for a new 58,000-seat stadium next to the existing White Hart Lane site.

He added that the new stadium could be used in the World Cup, if England's bid for the 2018 competition is successful, but said that letters should be written to Haringey Council to ensure full planning permission is granted for work on the new ground to begin.

"I would urge you to write and support the application," he told the shareholders.
