Tottenham make history by completing no summer signings

Tottenham make history by completing no summer signings

The north London club were prepared to offload the trio this summer but ultimately retained them after failing to find adequate replacements.

Earlier in the day, Pochettino said: "At the moment we haven't received for any player".

In addition to being the first Premier League team in 15 years to make a summer signing, Tottenham are also the only club in Europe's top five leagues and England's top four tiers without a new player this summer. That is true, don't believe in £400m, that is the truth.

'It is hard to understand for people in football that Tottenham didn't sign or didn't sell players but sometimes in football, you need to behave different'. That is a drama, I feel sorry for the English people.

"That maybe looks bad because of the perception and because of the history of football, but that is our decision - to keep the best players and to keep the squad". And then with Brexit it is worse because the cost is 30 per cent more. "It's a fearless decision".

Grealish's future has been in doubt after Villa failed to clinch promotion to the Premier League last season, with Spurs, Leicester City and West Ham United all linked with the 22-year-old.

The likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Jan Vertonghen, Kieran Trippier and Hugo Lloris only started their pre-season training over the past two weeks but Pochettino is hopeful they will be able to play some part against Newcastle on Saturday.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino insists he's happy to count on Toby Alderweireld this season.

"Football is a game where you need to be clever in how you set your principles, your strategy to try to win the games". It is important to be professional, to have commitment, with the team, with the club, with yourself, full commitment until the end.

On how people interpreted his comments at the end of last season, Pochettino added: "I am responsible for what I told you or what I tell you but I can not be responsible for what you believe that I wanted to tell you".
