Jamie O’Hara claims Spurs have ‘won transfer window’ and first trophy in years

Jamie O'Hara has claimed Tottenham have "won the transfer window" – joking it's their first trophy in 15 years.

Spurs have moved quickly in the market, securing free agents Fraser Forster and Ivan Perisic and signing Yves Bissouma from Brighton for £25million, which has been viewed as a particular coup by the north London club.

There's still over two months left for Premier League clubs to complete their business, but O'Hara believes his former side have already got the best of the summer. He told Sky Sports News: "We've won the transfer window we have. That's the first trophy we've had in 15 years is winning the transfer window."

Goalkeeper Forster will provide back-up to first-choice goalkeeper and club captain Hugo Lloris following his departure from Southampton, while former Inter Milan winger Perisic is expected to slot into the left wing-back role in Antonio Conte's 3-4-3 formation.

And Bissouma will certainly be a new addition to the Spurs starting line-up next season. Central midfield was a problem position for Conte last time out as he struggled to find a reliable partner for Pierre Hojbjerg.

Who would you argue has had the best window so far? Let us know in the comments section.

It's been a great few weeks for Tottenham chiefs, but O'Hara's comments created a stir on social media – and it's not the first time that's happened this week.

He clashed with talkSPORT colleague Laura Woods for criticising Arsenal's decision to hand Eddie Nketiah the No14 shirt once worn by legendary striker Thierry Henry.

"I can't believe he's getting number 14," said O'Hara. "I mean it just sums up really where Arsenal are right now. Spurs are buying all these great players, we're flying high, we've got Champions League football.

"And they're giving a player who didn't even want to be at the football club, all the fans said he wasn't good enough, he had decent end to the season, and they're giving him Thierry Henry's shirt. It's unbelievable. It's magic for us right now."
