Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has admitted he needs to free up funds before any new signings are made.
Redknapp currently deals with one of the Premier Leagues biggest squads and the board are keen to slimline the squad before any new players come in.
Spurs are looking to break back into the top four next season and new faces are expected to arrive at White Hart Lane but only after the squad is streamlined.
“There is nothing happening in the transfer market,” Redknapp said.
“I need to sell four or five players to bring in funds.
“The chairman has made it clear we need to move a few players before we can start doing any business.
“I keep seeing us linked with this player and that, but unless we reduce our squad numbers we will stay quiet in the market.”
The likes of Robbie Keane, David Bentley and Alan Hutton, to name a few, are expected to depart White Hart Lane over the coming months.
