Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy says the club will back Mauricio Pochettino in the summer transfer window but has ruled out overspending in light of Uefa financial fair play regulations.
Pochettino is likely to mirror the minor changes he made during his first summer in charge come the end of the season, despite the club having been linked with a host of players including Kevin Wimmer and Claudio Beauvue.
Levy says that regardless of the changes Pochettino is planning ahead of the new season, the Tottenham boss will be supported in the market as the club again chase qualification for the Champions League which has evaded them for a fifth straight season.
"We have restructured the footballing side of the club to ensure our sporting philosophy is adhered to – we need to ensure that we have a balance of experienced and home grown players, playing attacking, entertaining football our fans love to watch," he wrote in the matchday programme before the 2-0 win over Hull City.
"Perhaps we had lost our way a little bit in this respect, so this will be our guiding principle as we embark on the summer transfer window.
"We are all eager to be challenging at a higher level. While the popular view may be to spend money in excess of earnings or find a philanthropic investor to fund transfers, those scenarios are simply not possible under the new world of Financial Fair Play rules whereby clubs can only spend revenues generated through operations.
"That said, this summer we shall look to make changes to support Mauricio's plans for next season."
Tottenham's transfer plans going forward will be bolstered in future seasons by their move into their new 56,250 stadium which is due to be completed in time for the 2018-19 season.
Delays in the compulsory purchase order process means Tottenham will be forced to spend a season away from White Hart Lane during the 2017-18 campaign, with options for a groundshare currently being explored.
Wembley Stadium and Stadium MK are understood to be the leading options and Levy says the club will gauge opinion among supporters before making a final decision.
"We are currently undertaking due diligence and holding discussions on alternative stadium options," he added.
"Consideration needs to be given to several factors, including planning, policing, transport and the impact it may have on the team itself.
"Clearly all possible options have pros and cons and we are aware that we shall not be able to find one which will please all.
"It is, however, a short-term, interim arrangement so that we can ultimately deliver a fantastic new stadium in Tottenham for the long-term future success of the club.
"We shall also, at the appropriate time, be sending supporters a survey about their matchday activities, in order to better inform decisions for the season away."
