British pundit reveals the real reason why Spurs made no new signings

Former Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas has covered the subject of why Spurs decided against signing any new players before the transfer window closed last week.

After the end of the season in May, the club made several ambitious moves which saw a number of key first team players sign new contracts with the club.

Despite the promise of potential new signings, the club ended up as the only side in the league who failed to land a new addition before the transfer window closed.

But based on the words of Jenas, that was actually a decision Tottenham made due to their lack of success in securing their first choice transfer targets.

“It is the team that has got them to this position, with consecutive top-three finishes and Champions League football and if the club does not back Pochettino, that will inevitably tail off,” Jenas told BBC Sport.

“From my understanding, however, that is not the reason Spurs did not sign anyone this summer.

“Yes, Spurs had to stay within certain boundaries, but Pochettino was given the finances to go and get what he needed – it was just that Spurs were not able to get those deals over the line, and there was not much point in them going for their second or third choices.”
