Well ….. it may not be the exciting ‘marquee’ signing we were hoping to see before our debut Champions League season, but at least it’s a start!

According to reports Harry Redknapp has completed a deal to bring in ‘the promise of Honduras football’ in 17 year old striker Anthony Lozano.

Goal Threat ? - Lozano

With three goals in six appearances for his club side CD Olimpia and a stunning return of 11 goals in eight appearances as captain of the U17 Honduran national side, Lozano clearly has an eye for goal. Whether we will ever get to see him in the Lillywhite shirt in a competitive match ….. we’ll have to wait and see!

While the club are yet to confirm reports, they have admitted that the player is at the club on a ten day trial and a number of sources are now claiming that a deal for the prospect is already in place.

If the club do announce the deal as complete, then he would be Harry’s second signing of the summer following the arrival of Brazilian midfielder Sandro earlier in the transfer window.

Sitting here watching Sky Sports News and was thinking who have we actually signed? All I see is more transfer speculation for us Spurs fans. I mean it seems to me like anyother closed season,we are linked with big name players but as of yet no action. I remember a few years ago being linked with the likes of Kluivert,Rivaldo,Adriano,Ronaldo (the fat one) etc, so it’s not like we have never been linked to big name players but is this year any different, will we actually deliver on the big names?

Has qualifying for the Champions League really made much of a difference to the type of players we get linked with or are Tottenham getting used by other clubs to push up prices of their own players by claiming Spurs want them. One transfer I actually think will happen it’s just a matter of when is Joe Cole on a free. I’m sure Harry knows he can get cole to come to us and Cole recently said he will only come to a Champions League club, which rules out City and Liverpool. Apart from that has finishing 4th really made that much difference or is it just like any other closed season?

With just over a month to go before the start of the new campaign we keep getting linked with the same players week in week out but nothing ever seems to develop. We know we have Brazilian Sandro to join the club but that deal was done some months ago. Harry needs to trim the squad but as of yet nobody has actually left the club either, we know we have to shift out the dead wood and replace them with 3 or 4 players of quality if we are to push on.

I really hope i’m proved wrong in the next few weeks because if we are to push on it’s now or never. We have done the hard work by breaking into the top 4, we now have the means to attract bigger and better players. I expect Harry will bring in 2 or 3 players by August, however I hope he does not get sidetracked by England talk and focuses 100% on the future of Tottenham Hotspur.

So this closed season is it really going to be any different? are we going to be linked to big name playersand end up signing Emile Heskey or for once will we deliver on all this speculation. I would like just one nice suprise in the transfer window by signing someone we have yet to be linked with out of the blue, kind of like Modric, not much was said about him when we actually signed him. My tips are Joe Cole and Micah Richards but I just hope Harry knows he can now aim higher than he has his whole career and can tell the difference between the quality of players he needs for Tottenham opposed to the players he signed at West Ham and Portsmouth.
