Davies on whether players are worried about lack of spending

Tottenham defender Ben Davies has suggested that the club is not in desperate need of new signings in order to challenge for honours next season.

Last summer, Spurs were again without a new signing until the likes of Davinson Sanchez and Paulo Gazzaniga arrived on August 23 before Fernando Llorente and Serge Aurier moved to the club on deadline day.

And even though there is less time for Tottenham to bring in a new face before the transfer window closes this year, Davies believes there is no reason to panic.

“It doesn’t worry us [not signing anyone new],” Davies is quoted as saying by the Evening Standard.

“We’ve got a good squad here and even on this pre-season tour so far the boys have put in good performances.

“We see all the teams around us adding but that’s football – we don’t worry about that. All we have to worry about is what goes on behind closed doors for us.

“I think we’ve showed that we could [compete with the top six]. The squad is the same at the moment but we’ve got a lot of quality here and we can show that again this season.

“Of course the teams around us are going to strengthen but new faces doesn’t necessarily mean that teams are going to be better. All these teams and top sides just having new faces last year doesn’t necessarily mean they’re going to be a better team to play against.”
