Former Tottenham Hotspur captain Ledley King has told Press Association Sport, as quoted by the Daily Mail, that he is pleased with the club's signings of Victor Wanyama and Vincent Janssen this summer.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has moved to improve the squad which finished third last season ahead of launching another title push this term.

Combative midfielder Wanyama was signed from Southampton for an £11 million fee last month, whilst Janssen left Dutch side AZ Alkmaar to move to White Hart Lane in a £17 million deal earlier this week.

Both players will add another option in their respective position, with Janssen, who scored 31 goals in 49 appearances for AZ last season, sure to provide stern competition for England striker and last season's Premier League golden boot winner Harry Kane.

King admitted he is happy with the business done in the transfer market so far, and as well as hailing Janssen's scoring record he suggested that in Wanyama Spurs now have another quietly impressive player in the mould of defensive midfield star Eric Dier.

The former captain told PA Sport, as quoted by the Daily Mail: "I’m pleased with those two signings. Another attacking option was very important and Janssen has a great scoring record from playing in Holland.

"Wanyama I’ve seen many times and I’ve been very impressed by him. He’s a bit like Eric Dier, you don’t see all the good work he does."

'Wanyama I've seen many times and I've been very impressed by him. He's a bit like Eric Dier, you don't see all the good work he does.

"I saw him for Southampton at White Hart Lane last season and he was one of the best players on the pitch. The manager knows him well so it's no surprise he's gone for him. I think both players will be a big boost to the squad."

Though Spurs are still thought to be on the hunt for more additions, Janssen and Wanyama surely represent two very strong additions for the North London side as they gear up for a vital season.

The club will be desperate to prove that last season's threatening of the title was no flash in the pan, as well as juggling their domestic challenge with a return to the Champions League.
