Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is confident he has the funds to take the team to a new level.

The White Hart Lane boss said he and chairman Daniel Levy are united in their determination to leave no stone unturned in their quest to bring the title to N17 for the first time since 1961.

"We're in a great position. At least we're in there," said Redknapp.

"We were fourth this time last year and the year before we finished fourth, so we've been in and around it over the past couple of years.

"With a bit of luck we can be bang there again. We've got a great chance, with more points on he board than we've ever had before at this stage.

"We've given ourselves every chance of having a great second half of the season. We've just got to keep it going and if we can get someone special, who could make a difference, we will go and do it.

"It's not a case of trying to bring in someone as cover. If you are going to bring anyone in, you need someone who will go into the team straight away and improve it.

"Finding them is difficult, so I'm not saying to Daniel, 'There's him here or him there.' Trying to find players who are better than the ones we have at the club is difficult.

"But players will want to come here and play in this team and the chairman would do it if it's possible. He is up for doing it if we can find them.

"That's difficult. In terms of a striker, where do you find someone in this country? There's Wayne Rooney but after that where do you find anyone better than Jermain Defoe or Emmanuel Adebayor."
