Andre Villas-Boas: Planning to strengthen his squad further

Andre Villas-Boas admits Tottenham Hotspur remain in the market for new recruits after striking a deal for Nacer Chadli.

Spurs have reached an agreement for Chadli with FC Twente and he will complete a move to England once personal terms have been agreed and a medical completed.?

The Belgium international will become Spurs' second signing of the summer once he makes his way to White Hart Lane, with Paulinho having already been added to the ranks.

Villas-Boas was expected to be busy during the current window, after seeing Tottenham fall agonisingly short in a push for a top-four finish last season, and the Portuguese coach has revealed that he is hoping to add further competition for places.

"We will continue to do our market and we have not stopped yet, for sure," he said.

A striker is reported to be top of Villas-Boas' wish list, with Spurs seemingly well stocked for creativity in midfield.

Chadli has added to the wealth of playmaking talent, with his versatility in the final third making him a shrewd addition.

Villas-Boas said of the 23-year-old winger: "Chadli's a player we've been following for quite some time and we managed to strike a deal in the last few days.

"He's a player who is extremely versatile and can play in several positions up front. He played with tremendous success on the left for Twente as a winger and as an attacker for Belgium. We look forward to having him on board with us."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
