Ledley gives Tottenham new boys the thumbs up.

Our very own Ambassador, Ledley King has spoken about Tottenham’s transfer dealings so far this summer, as a person and player that we all trust and admire then his opinion on each of the three incoming players so far should give us huge hope for the forthcoming season.

The first player through the doors was of course Paulinho for a then record Tottenham transfer fee of £17m, fresh from inspiring and powerful performances for Brazil in a successful Confederations Cup campaign Ledley only has good things to say about a midfielder he considers as world class already. Paulinho is an all action midfielder ideally suited to the Premier League, he is a huge prescence offering pace and power to the Tottenham midfield already well stocked with quality, he has a propensity to find space in the box and brings with him an exceptional goalscoring record.

The third player to sign on the dotted line was Roberto Soldado and again the Tottenham transfer fee was broken and he cost a massive £26m from Valencia. Ledley has acknowledged that he is another top quality signing and a forward almost guaranteed to bring lots of goals, he has such quality that his first venture into the Premier League and a new team will be a simple transition. Soldado is not a typical Levy purchase as he is already the finished article and will unlikely bring very much financial return in the future, he has cost so much money because he is already one of the very best strikers around and has managed to bang in more than twenty goals in each of the last four seasons, last season brought thirty goals in all competitions and at last, Ledley and everybody who has Tottenham at heart believe that the club have finally signed the real deal and a suitable replacement for Dimitar Berbatov. Yes it has been that long since we have had a conventional centre forward of such quality.

Nacer Chadli is the other confirmed signing so far and probably the one that we know least about, what we do know is that he is tall, powerful and quick and another who knows where the goal is. Ledley King actually expects much of Chadli and believes that everybody will soon realise what an incredible talent he is and suggesting that he might well become one of the stars of the team rather than just a squad member as many seem to think he is,

As things stand this Tottenham squad is looking remarkably strong and well catered for in all areas other than the fourth central defender following the sale of Steven Caulker, it seemed that Chiriches was his immediate replacement until that deal hit a snag, it might still happen or might Capoue with whom Tottenham are now linked become the cover in central defence due to his adaptability. Just the two players have so far been sold, Caulker and Dempsey, both good players but never first choice, there will be further sales of course, maybe even our outstanding player of last season Gareth Bale, but until it actually happens you have to look at this Tottenham squad and admit that it is a squad capable of pushing for the title, only the City and Chelsea squads compare or might actually be considered it’s slight superior.

How we could do with a fully fit Ledley King now, had he not been forced into retirement because of injury he would still be our club captain, an automatic choice in defence and still the best defender in the league.
