Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino will delay an overhaul at White Hart Lane until after his first full season at White Hart Lane, according to former midfielder Jamie Redknapp.
Victory over 10-man Aston Villa on Sunday 2 November, virtue of Harry Kane's late free-kick, propelled Spurs into eighth after 10 league games following an inconsistent start to the campaign, which has already included four defeats.
Pochettino resisted making wholesale changes to his Tottenham squad in the summer, signing just six players and while his reign has begun in uncertain fashion Redknapp believes further signings will be delayed until next summer.
Speaking after the 2-1 win over Villa, Redknapp told Sky Sports: "Pochettino is going to need time because a lot of those players are not good enough for where he wants to take the club and you can only judge him when he's got the players he wants.
"It probably wasn't the right time in the summer to buy and sell lots of players after they did that at the start of last season, and it might be at the end of this season when he gets four or five in and four or five out. But if I was Baldini, I'd be nervous after all the players he has bought."
Kane's eighth goal of the season and fifth in his last four games helped Tottenham overcome Villa at the weekend as the England under-21 international further pressed his claim for a starting place in the Premier League.
Despite his recent goalscoring exploits, which saw him net his first club hat-trick against Asteras Tripolis in the Europa League, Kane has not been rewarded with a top-flight start this term having made six substitute appearances as Pochettino continues to hold him back.
Kane has netted more goals this term than both Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor combined and Redknapp says Pochettino cannot continue to ignore the Tottenham youngster's ability.
"Kane is an exceptional talent who works hard on his game and there is absolutely no way Pochettino can leave him out of this team now," he added.
"If you compare him to Adebayor and Soldado, there is no comparison."
