Tottenham Hotspur have no intention of sanctioning the sale of Eric Dier or Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg to AS Roma this summer, according to The Sun.

Former Spurs head coach Jose Mourinho wasted no time in returning to football last week when he was announced as the new manager of the Italian outfit, less than three weeks after his dismissal by Daniel Levy (BBC).

The Portuguese will replace the outgoing Paulo Fonseca at the end of the current campaign and signed a three-year contract.

Italian news outlet Corriere dello Sport had earlier claimed the Mourinho was planning a raid on his former side with Dier and Hojbjerg having been included on his list of transfer targets.

Mourinho tried to sign Dier while he was in charge of Manchester United (The Guardian) and admitted that he has followed Hojbjerg for some time following the Dane’s arrival from Southampton last summer (CBS Sports).

The Sun claim that the North Londoners have no intention of selling either player with a club insider quoted as saying: “There is no way we would sell either of these players.

“Of course, the new manager would have the final say.
