Tottenham Hotspur fans have been warned not to expect much transfer activity next month by club chairman Daniel Levy.
Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is a notorious wheeler dealer in the transfer market but will have to curb his habits in January after spending £45million 11 months ago on the likes of Robbie Keane, Jermain Defoe and Wilson Palacios.
Levy has said that players will only be brought to White Hart Lane in the winter transfer window if money is made from the sale of current squad members.
"We do not envisage being very active in the January transfer window, although we will take note of any opportunities that arise," he said at the club's Annual General Meeting.
"That is with the proviso, however, that we do not envisage any net spending.
"There will be no disruption to the core team. Having a settled squad gives us the best chance for consistency.
"We are striving for top-level displays, including the ability to take on and beat the so-called top-four teams."
