Poch on possible deadline day sales

Tottenham became the first Premier League club ever to not make a single signing this summer, but the window remains open for the rest of Europe, making a late sale extremely possible.

The likes of Toby Alderweireld, Danny Rose and Mousa Dembele have been long since linked with moves away from North London.

In today’s press conference as quoted by Football.London, Poch was asked whether the players would now definitely be staying.

Pochettino said: “I told you, I don’t know why you focus on a few names. I never talk about names. I think you need to be focusing on 24, 25 or 26.

“Some players may have the possibility at the last minute to have an offer. But of course for different reasons that I said before, some players that are going to leave they don’t receive an offer. Players who do receive an offer don’t want to leave.

“Another who expect to have an offer they are still waiting. But it’s not only a few names. It’s 25 players. My position you know very well. That’s why I don’t want to talk. If something happens it happens, if some offer arrives and a players who wants to leave leaves. We are not going to push someone to leave.

“I am happy with the squad that I have. Look, I talk about reality and I don’t guess what’s going to happen, or the perception or what people believe is going to happen inside.”

While Toby, Danny and Mousa were linked with big transfers away, it seems that all three will now be staying for the remainder of the season.

Fringe players such as N’Koudou and Sissoko may still be in with a chance of moving on, however.

One journalist asked the Spurs manager if he could tell us exactly which players there had been offers for over the window.

“No, I never talk about this. But I don’t say the reality is that they had offers. Maybe we didn’t receive one offer. I didn’t say that happens. Only I describe the reality. The reality is all the players are here and then it’s up to you and the people to guess what happens inside.

“That is the problem. People love to talk. Today with social media and everything, everyone has an opinion. Everyone explains how they feel. Of course they’re entitled to listen or to hear or sometimes the information arrives.

“Like I told my players, the problem is I take the decision and I am in charge. I am the boss and that is why the club picked me four years ago.”
