Is this the best piece of business Tottenham did in winter window?

Tottenham's signing of Dele Alli could be their most impressive piece of business during the winter transfer window.

Tottenham Hotspur completed their best piece of business in the January transfer window in the final minutes of it.

Spurs waited until the eleventh hour to announce the signing of Dele Alli from MK Dons, but they were saving their best until last as the transfer looks to be the most exciting that they have completed under Mauricio Pochettino so far.

Although Alli was purchased as a player for the future, he has the ability to go right to the top and Tottenham have done well to ensure that they will be the ones to benefit from his talent.

The 18-year-old is already one of the Football League's finest players and has all of the characteristics required to take him to the top.

Powerful, skilful and grounded, Alli should develop into a future England international and, as a result, securing his transfer for a price the BBC reported to be £5 million is a stunning piece of business.

Tottenham did some good work in the winter market - notably tying down Harry Kane and Ryan Mason on long-term contracts - but the addition of Alli stands out.

If he fulfils his potential, he can become a player worth five times the amount the side bought him for and it looks as if Daniel Levy's prudent transfer strategy may pay dividends on this occasion.
