Moving on

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Yesterday saw the end of the transfer window and endless speculation.

During this transfer period we have successfully secured the signing of Japanese World Cup star Kazuyuki Toda - only the second Japanese player to arrive in the Premiership.

Daniel Levy, Chairman, commented last night: "Glenn and I have looked seriously at several other players this transfer window and I know the fans would have liked news of an additional signing, but we have not found a player who was right for the Club, both at this point in time and in the longer-term.

"It is a tighter market, with less movement and bigger question marks over the true value of players.

"Come the summer, a huge plus for us will be that we shall have all our options open and a more sensible timescale to work within."

Glenn added: "We were not prepared to rush into a deal that wasn’t right for us and panic buy. Our fans wouldn't thank us for that.

"Let’s remember, we have a strong, deep First team, strengthened further by the arrival of Toda, a healthy Reserves line up and everything to play for.

"I strongly believe that our current squad is capable of giving us a serious chance of getting into Europe and I’m now looking forward to concentrating purely on what happens on the pitch, starting with Chelsea tomorrow.

"Our fans have always shown tremendous support and now is a key time to get behind the team."
