Tottenham chairman Levy makes January spending decision

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has no plans for a big spending January.

The London Evening Standard says Tottenham will not give Jose Mourinho major funds in January,.

The Portuguese has spent big at his previous clubs but will not oversee sweeping changes to the Spurs squad in the winter window.

It is claimed Mourinho accepted such a remit when he first took the job last month.

He has already publicly dismissed the chances of a January move for either Zlatan Ibrahimovic, apparently AC Milan-bound, and Bruno Fernandes.

One deal Spurs could do, however, is make Giovani Lo Celso's loan move permanent.

They can sign the player for €32m (£26.9m) in January rather than spending €40m (£33.6m) in the summer.
