Mourinho insists Spurs won't panic buy

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho insists they won't panic buy this month.

Mourinho insists Tottenham will not make any knee-jerk signings in January.

Spurs are in the market for a striker, with England captain Harry Kane currently recovering from surgery to repair his injured hamstring. Mourinho says any new signings must fit into the club's long-term vision.

"To do something, you have to do something that is good for our future too, not just good for tomorrow," said Mourinho. "Something that is good for the future too and of course the club is very aware of it and the club is very committed of course but we want to do something that is right by every point of view.

"So I don't speak about other players from other clubs, about things that can happen or not happen because that's not me and that's not the way Tottenham operate too.

"But we are trying to see if any good opportunities arise."
