Spurs achieved goal as Brexit influenced lack of transfers - Pochettino

The Argentine appeared at the end of last season to call on the club's owners to make some signings after Spurs finished in the Premier League top three for the third consecutive season.

Spurs were linked with Aston Villa's Jack Grealish, however, a deal was not completed, leaving manager Pochettino without any fresh faces in London.

"I think we have a very competitive squad, of course that we are hoping to improve, but if you can not improve the most important thing is trying to keep your best team, your best players".

'I am happy to keep all the squad together, there were many rumours during the summer about players out, ' he said.

'We are always open to finding the solution when it is possible.

Grealish, whose future has been the subject of intense speculation for the whole summer, trained at Villa's Bodymoor Heath training ground on Thursday morning and club insiders are now confident he won't be sold before the 5pm transfer deadline.

So six of Tottenham's fringe players have been ruled out but Pochettino is also sweating on the fitness of several of his first team regulars after many returned back late to pre-season following their exploits at the World Cup.

Both Dembele and Alderweireld will now run their contracts into the final 12 months as a result and will be free to talk to foreign clubs from January while Rose is tied to Tottenham until 2021 after signing a long-term deal two years ago. It's a massive effort from the club. "It's making an unbelievable effort to finish our stadium".

The alternative is to re-integrate Alderweireld into the Tottenham squad, and start making him a key player once again.

He even joked he was thinking he could get a game.

Spurs were the only Premier League club not to make a summer signing after their move for Jack Grealish collapsed but Pochettino said: "What the club is doing is showing it is so courageous".

"I am not anxious, I am not sad, I am so happy".
