Ardiles: Spurs right not to buy this summer

Tottenham hero Ossie Ardiles is happy the club didn't make any summer signings.

Spurs became the first ever Premier League club not to make a signing during the summer transfer window.

But Ardiles says: “You must remember this Tottenham team is still very young – Harry Kane is only 25, Dele Alli is 22 – and the outlook for their squad as a whole is very, very positive.

“To bring players in, they would have to be better than the ones already at the club, so I admire them for sticking with players instead of panic-buying.

"I'm incredibly happy that we have kept certain players, like Toby Alderweireld and Danny Rose, when a lot of people were saying they were off.

“So in all, it's an exciting time to be associated with Tottenham – a wonderful manager, wonderful players, a wonderful training facility and, soon, a wonderful new stadium.

“They are competitive in every regard.

“Now they just need to take the final step by turning contenders into winners."
