Andre Villas-Boas insists that Tottenham have not finished their business in the transfer market this summer following the arrival of Etienne Capoue on Thursday.

France midfielder Capoue became Spurs’ fourth signing of the summer following the arrivals of Roberto Soldado, Nacer Chadli and and Paulinho.

But the Portuguese coach is determined to continue strengthening his squad as he looks to assemble a team capable of breaking back into the top four.

“We have been very active in the transfer window – not just players coming in, but players going out,” Villas-Boas said. “The ultimate objective is to make the team stronger than the year before.

“We couldn’t manage to get in the top four spot we wanted [last season]. Our ambition stays the same and for that to happen we have been very, very active in the transfer window. We are trimming down the squad to make it strong.

“We haven’t finished our business. We will continue to be active and hopefully have the team ready in the next few weeks.”

Tottenham kick off their Premier League campaign with a trip to Crystal Palace on Saturday.
