Fans fear the building costs could hurt the club’s playing budget — just as rivals Arsenal struggled after their Emirates move.

Yet executive director Cullen, one of chairman Daniel Levy’s closest aides, said: “Not necessarily.

“Daniel has been quite clear on this — but we’ve always operated on a fairly prudent basis.

“The notion of moving to an increased capacity stadium is to collect the greater revenues that other top-six clubs enjoy.

“And everything that we do is about investing in the first team.”

Spurs are yet to sign a player this summer — and there are now just NINE DAYS until the transfer window slams shut.

But Cullen denies Levy is putting the brakes on spending, insisting: “No, no. That’s a misconception.

“Daniel always works closely with managers, identifies targets and works to get them.

“But we are no different to rivals in occasionally not being able to acquire players who might be top of your list.”

Wales left-back Ben Davies insists Tottenham players are unfazed by the lack of summer signings, despite major rivals splashing out

Ben Davies says the players are not bothered by their lack of transfer-market action.

The Wales defender is set to play in their final tour game against AC Milan in Minneapolis in the early hours tomorrow.

And Davies, 25, said: “No, it doesn’t worry us. We see all the teams around us adding players — but that’s football.

“We showed we could compete last season. New faces don’t necessarily mean teams will be better.”
