With the release of Tottenham Hotspur’s minutes from the recent club and Trust meeting, Daniel Levy has claimed that manager Mauricio Pochettino’s transfer budget would not be affected by our new White Hart Lane spending.
In response, a number of fans feel that given the summer which saw no fresh players arrive at the club, Levy has simply shot himself in the foot and opened himself up to significant criticism and scrutiny come the January transfer window.
The minutes are available in full here and it doesn’t really reveal anything fans haven’t heard before as Levy has already claimed that Poch’s transfer budget was ring-fenced, but I believe his comments about Wembley Stadium and its future are definitely fresh.
On a transfer front though, few would expect him to say anything else but with the topic covered, it’s only going to intensify thoughts ahead of January as with no summer spending some fans will be expecting some kind of splurge.
That certain figure is: £0.00. I’m certain of it.

He's not going himself any favors coming out and saying this. If we're not short on funds, why did we try haggling over 5 million for grealish before it got too late?

Without telling us what that transfer policy is then his statement is meaningless. Also admitted that they needed to sell b4 buying but couldn’t find anyone to pay top $ for unwanted players

He’s right you know, we spent £0 in the last one, we spend £0 in the next one

When you don't make any transfers, of course it won't affect our transfer policy.

As the above shows, plenty of others aren’t though.
The truth is probably in between.
