Ange Postecoglou provides transfer update with more signings 'unlikely'

Tottenham got right to business at the start of January's transfer window, and despite plenty of links with incomings and outgoings over the past few weeks, there's little chance of another deal going through before Thursday.

Antonio Nusa. Conor Gallagher. Jean-Clair Todibo. Tottenham have been in talks and linked with plenty of clubs across Europe over the past few weeks. Nevertheless, as they enter the final two days of the transfer window, it's looking doubtful they'll add to the signings of Radu Dragusin and Timo Werner.

Spurs were in talks with Antonio Nusa's camp for weeks before Brentford stepped in with an offer that would see the player find regular minutes, although recently the deal has begun to break down with concerns stemming from his performance in Monday's medical.

With the Norwegian winger's clear favoritism for playing time, in addition to recent speculation over the player's fitness, Spurs have stepped away from a potential deal.

Jean-Clair Todibo is another name that's been circulating the media as a potential addition in Tottenham's effort to bolster their defensive ranks. However, reports tell us that a move to North London would make more sense for the summer window, and a number of other clubs could pick him up in the meantime.

For Conor Gallagher, the story may simply be one of timing. At present, he's happy with the project at Chelsea and Pochettino has loved the contributions from the midfielder. In November the Englishman even stated that "everyone knows Chelsea is my club and I love playing for them." As The Mirror reports, a move for Gallagher would likely come in the final hours of the window, if at all.

Speaking in his most recent press conference ahead of Wednesday's return to league action against Brentford, Postecoglou delivered his take on the possibility of more incomings for the North London Club, stating that it was "unlikely... I don't see any incomings. Outgoings a little bit different because I'm not totally engaged with that, other people are doing the work around that. I'd say unlikely on both fronts without ruling anything out."

Any long-time fan knows that there's certainly some truth to not "rulling anything out," so everyone will have their eyes peeled across the next 48 hours. However, even with this in mind, it looks like the Spurs team hosting the Bees this week is the one Ange will work with for the remainder of the season, with of course the return of players from injury and international duty like Manor Solomon, Son Heung-min, Yves Bissouma, and Pape Sarr.
