Following a summer that saw Tottenham spend £108 million on new players, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has told manager Andre Villas-Boas that he and technical director Franco Baldini will be given more money to buy new players in the January transfer window, according to the Daily MailAs it turns out, the club only lost £2 million on transfers this summer as their player sales, highlighted by the £85 million transfer of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid, came out to be just shy of what they spent.

According to the Daily MailAVB will go after a left-back to shore up the position and compete with 23 year old defender Danny Rose. The club will also look for another striker, showing the manager’s lack of faith in Jermain Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor, who have both been pushed down the pecking order following the arrival of Roberto Soldado.

Tottenham’s summer signings include defender Vlad Chiriches, midfielders Etienne Capoue, Christian Eriksen, and Paulinho, forward Erik Lamela, winger Nacer Chadli, and £26 million striker Roberto Soldado. The new players have all had an impact on the team so far, with Eriksen recently taking the spotlight with an assist last weekend and a goal in the club’s 3-0 Europa League victory over Tromso on Thursday. Erik Lamela and Paulinho combined for a dramatic stoppage time winner against Cardiff City yesterday, as Lamela’s cross set the Brazilian up for a brilliant backheel finish.

The players will have another chance to impress their new manager tomorrow when the club takes on Aston Villa in the Capital One Cup.
