Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has promised the club’s supporters that he will continue to back manager Mauricio Pochettino in the transfer market.
Following two transfer windows when the club did not sign a single new player, constrained in part by the cost of building their new stadium, Spurs have already smashed their transfer record this summer to bring in midfielder Tanguy Ndombélé from Lyons. They have also bought teenage striker Jack Clarke from Leeds United, although he has subsequently gone back to the South Yorkshire club to spend the season on loan.
However, speaking in Shanghai after the club signed a new eight-year sponsorship deal with insurance club AIA, which, at £45 million a year, makes it the third most lucrative in the Premier League after similar arrangements for the two Manchester clubs, Levy implied that fans can expect more incomings at White Hart Lane before the transfer window closes saying “we will continue where we can to improve the team”.
