Paulinho, Aaron Lennon and Roberto Soldado are amongst those to be heavily linked with a move away, with the latter said to be interesting Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen.

Soldado has struggled for goals and form since arriving for £6million in the summer of 2013, although Pochettino insists he has no intention of selling the misfiring striker, nor anyone else.

“I am happy with him,” he said. “I am the same as before. All players are in my plans and (there is not) any news.

“I expect all players to be here because we have ahead a lot of games.

“We are still in four competitions and I think that we need a strong squad to take on all games that we have in the future.”

Pushed to confirm Soldado was not for sale, Pochettino retorted: “Any player is (not) for sale. Any player.

“We want to keep all players because we need all players, a strong squad.

“No more comment about that because I repeat always the same: I am happy with the squad.”

  1. That's great! I'm glad Poch is backing the players!

    Ade's due for his annual 10 goal slam. Bobby adds a lot to the match via key passes and assists, and Paulinho, Capoue, and Vlad are looking much improved!

    Also, we are at our non home grown max number.
