AVB admits Tottenham unlikely to sign a striker

avb.jpgThere are groans of disappointment inside the Football Transfer Tavern following the latest quotes from manager Andre Villas-Boas regarding the clubs search for a striker, bought to us by sources at Sky Sports.

It is no secret Tottenham have been after a striker during this transfer window, but with just one day remaining AVB does not think the club have left themselves enough time to tie up any deals.

They have been linked with a host of names this month, with Brazilian striker Leandro Damiao, Celtic’s Gary Hooper and most recently David Villa of Barcelona all mentioned, although the Tottenham manager was quick to laugh off the latest rumour.

Villas-Boas also stated that he did not expect any players to leave before the transfer window closes on Thursday evening.

“David Villa? No, I don’t think so!” Villas-Boas told Sky Sports after the 1-1 draw with Norwich.

“At the moment I have told you that we are willing to take a risk on Jermain Defoe’s injury. Defoe played 90 minutes and played very well.

“No, I don’t think so [there will be any players leaving].”

Tottenham fans have grown accustomed to seeing players joining the club late on deadline day, and whether this is a bluff from the manager in order to distract other clubs away from their targets remains to be seen.

Tottenham fans, do you think this is a bluff from AVB? Will the club recruit a striker before the deadline? Let us know your thoughts below.

    shocking !!!! inter have come out and said today that the deal could be done today …why do we not have something set up with this deal we have going with them so we dont have to leave it until the 12th hour …levy is going to pull the rug from under our feet again . if he wants champions league football so much why does he not see we need a striker to get us there?

    Levy has a track record of not signing the obvious in January and then wondering why the team did not qualify for the Champions League. Why should we expect this season to be any different?

    THe deficiencies in the team are there for all of us to see. It is so frustrating being a Spurs fan. The usual thing will happen Levy will leave it until 5 to 11 tonight, then tomorrow morning issue a statement saying we missed Damiao or Negrado by 3 minutes.

    I want him to get Diame and someone who can actually put the ball in the net.

    Levy the business man???? If so then he should understand INVESTMENT. Its a business word, football is big business invest in class striker who scores goals. Goals mean champions league, champions league mean big business, so great INVESTMENT. Rocket science????? NO!!

    Where exactly did Defoe play well last night, he was hardly in the game, no goal in eight and his willing to take a gamble on his fitness, is AVB having a laugh and are the manager and chairman serious about having C/L football at the lane ??. With statements like that then clearly they are not !!
