Tottenham Hotspur fans on Twitter have been responding to the latest news concerning Spurs chairman Daniel Levy. 

This comes after Spurs-focused Twitter account @thespursweb shared a post relaying comments made by football journalist David Ornstein during a recent January transfer Q&A he did with The Athletic.

How well can you remember Spurs' season so far? 1. Who is Spurs' top scorer in all competitions so far this season?

During the Q&A, Ornstein claimed that he doesn’t think Levy “intends to spend at all this winter”.

Ornstein also said that even if Levy wanted to spend money on new players in the January window, “it doesn’t sound like the money is there” for the club to use.

This post then gathered a lot of replies from Spurs fans, who were quick to share their thoughts on this news.

So, what did these Spurs fans have to say about Daniel Levy and the January transfer window?

“Disappointed but not surprised”

“Yeah we’ve all heard that before”

@lilywhitescoys

“No one is surprised.”

@grhumphrey

“Oh the joys”

@alexcoys2020

“Title gone”

@thfcmichel

“Not surprised. Our job in january needs to be get rid of some of these squad players and try and make a profit”

Looking at the replies to this post, it appears that the majority of these Spurs fans are disappointed but not particularly surprised that it has been claimed Levy will not spend any money on bringing in new players to the north London club in the January transfer window.

Do you think Spurs will sign anyone in January?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Given how the club spent a total sum of £67.95 million on permanent signings such as Sergio Reguilon, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Matt Doherty and Joe Rodon in the previous summer transfer window, this could be a big factor as to why Levy may not be looking to sign any new players in January.

Also, with Spurs having 29 players in their first-team squad – the joint-third highest out of all the clubs in the Premier League (as per Transfermarkt) – maybe they should look at clearing some players out in January before bringing new ones in.
