Tottenham Hotspur are now a full and settled squad once again, at least for the time being, as the summer transfer window slammed shut on September 2.
Spurs and manager Pochettino now know that the current crop of players will be at their disposal until January at least.
The main exit worry this summer came in the form of Christian Eriksen, the club’s chief playmaker, after he made it clear to the press that he wanted a move away.
The Great Dane said that he was ready to move on to something bigger and a new challenge away from North London (Ekstra Bladet).
However, there were no concrete reports of bids in the media and the midfielder ended up remaining at Spurs for at least the first half of the season.
It remains to be seen whether he will now sign a new deal or whether he will look for a January move.
Harry Winks, Eriksen’s fellow midfielder, has now given an insight into the mood in the dressing room surrounding the Eriksen saga.
Winks said (TalkSPORT): “We don’t really read too much into that sort stuff as players. Our job is to go out there and to play and to just give commitment and 100% all the time.
“And no one can fault that of us at the club; everyone always works hard, everyone always tries their best.
“It’s been a good pre-season for us, everyone is feeling good and free and hopefully we can have a good season.”
