Tottenham chairman Levy: We could've easily spent more money on players

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy insists they could've spent more this past summer.

Levy has revealed that he could've sanctioned more deals if anything was to catch his eye, even after they smashed their transfer record.

Tanguy Ndombele joined from Lyon for £55million with further deals for Ryan Sessegnon [£30m] and Jack Clarke [£10m].

Giovani Lo Celso also joined on loan with the view to make it permanent next summer.

Levy told the Financial Times: “We could have easily spent more money on players.

“Who knows if that would have bought us more success or not?

“The right approach is to build from the bottom up.

“There is no quick fix to becoming a much more significant global club. I am a fan, clearly you want to win on the pitch.

“But we have been trying to look at this slightly differently, in that we want to make sure we ensure an infrastructure here to stand the test of time."
