Levy expecting late Tottenham transfer flurry

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy suggests his club will act again late in the transfer window.

Spurs have already signed defensive trio Toby Alderweireld from Atletico Madrid, Kieran Trippier from Burnley and Kevin Wimmer from FC Cologne and continue to be linked with a number of other players.

However, Levy says that transfer dealings will not be placed on the backburner for the next couple of weeks but believes there will be more action in the form of late flurry before the summer window slams shut.

"The window will be reasonably busy. We have already brought in four new players since the winter window and we've done deals for players who have now left," he said.

"At the moment it is fairly relaxed. I would anticipate that, as the window goes on, the activity will happen in the last two weeks, but we are trying to do business early where we can."

Tottenham, who also welcomed Dele Alli from MK Dons after his January signing, have been linked with such players as Fernando Llorente, Timo Werner and James McCarthy.

Spurs have already said goodbye to Paulinho, who joined Chinese club Guangzhou Evergrande, and Etienne Capoue, who has moved to Watford, and could still offload Younes Kaboul, Aaron Lennon, Erik Lamela, Roberto Soldado and Vlad Chiriches.
