Postecoglou: Spurs won’t be busy between now and deadline


Ange Postecoglou is not expecting to be busy over the remaining days of the January transfer window but is buoyed by the fact one of his key players is fully fit and set to start tomorrow night’s game with Brentford.

The Australian has signed Timo Werner and Radu Dragusin over the past couple of weeks and he believes that will be it in terms of incomings with the window closing on Thursday night.

“More business is unlikely. I don’t see any incomings,” he said. 

“Outgoings are a little bit different because I’m not as engaged in that. Others are dealing with that but I’d say also unlikely.”

Spurs will be able to call on James Maddison from the outset against Thomas Frank’s men with the England international having returned from three months out with an ankle injury against Manchester City on Friday.

Maddison came on after 73 minutes against City but failed to make much of an impact as Tottenham exited the FA Cup courtesy of Nathan Ake’s late goal.

Postecoglou admitted the summer signing from Leicester was itching to get on sooner.

He added: ”James Maddison was fine. I could have given him a bit more game time but the way the match was going, I put him on a little bit later than he would have liked. He’s been training and is ready to go.”

Spurs are still without Manor Solomon, Giovani Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon but Senegal’s round of 16l exit at the African Cup of Nations means midfielder Pape Sarr will shortly be returning to North London.

“Pape Sarr should be back from AFCON tomorrow at some stage and available for Saturday,” said Postecoglou. 

“I’m disappointed for him because Senegal had ambitions of winning the tournament, but it will be good to get him back.”
