Daniel Levy insists Tottenham intend on retaining key players

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy insists key players will be retained this summerTottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has thanked fans for their support this season and has insisted that the club intend to retain their key players.

This season has seen Tottenham embark on a European journey through the Champions League producing wins against Inter Milan, AC Milan and Werder Bremen, only to fall at the quarter final stage against Real Madrid.

With Champions League probably the biggest footballing stage of them all, numerous players have been linked with moves to other clubs with the likes of Gareth Bale and Sandro possibly most talked about. However the Spurs chairman, Daniel Levy has suggested on the official Tottenham website that no offers for key players will be entertained.

“We have spent years and hundreds of millions of pounds investing in our First Team squad and in creating a settled team. Having quality players means they automatically attract attention from other clubs – but I can assure you that we have no reason to sell, and every intention of retaining, our key players. We shall simply not entertain any approaches for these players.”

Levy did however claim that the squad would be reduced somewhat over the summer.

“We do, however, currently have one of the largest squads in the Premier League and, given the 25 man squad rule, it is no longer practical to retain players who are unlikely to qualify within that limit. We shall, therefore, look to reduce the number of these players during the coming summer transfer window in order to operate both effectively and efficiently.”
