Hutton: Bright start down south
Alan Hutton insists his ambition will only be sated should Tottenham break into the Premier League's top four next season.
While the White Hart Lane trophy cabinet has had to make space for the Carling Cup this term, it has largely been a campaign of unrest and change in North London.
Martin Jol paid the price for a slow start with his job and while Juande Ramos has largely impressed, his evaluation of the squad he inherited from the Dutchman intimates wholesale changes could be forthcoming in the summer.
One of Ramos' first moves as Spurs boss was to bring in Hutton from Rangers and the Scotland international is determined to play his part next term, as the capital club bid for the UEFA Champions League.
"I wanted to come down here and progress as a player and I think I can do that," he told the Evening Standard.
"I have fitted into the squad quickly and, hopefully, I and the team can improve next season.
"I don't see why we cannot force our way into the top four. The manager will be strengthening the squad, so hopefully we can challenge in the future."
