Tottenham first Premier League team to fail to make one summer signing

The 30-year-old received a heroes welcome from Villa fans when the two clubs met in a pre-season friendly earlier this summer, in which West Ham came out 3-1 victors.

"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".

"It maybe looks bad [not to sign anyone] because of the perception and because of the history of football, but that is our decision - to keep the best players and to keep the squad".

The Gunners went from one of the best teams in Europe to Premier League also-rans in the aftermath of their move to a new crib, due in no uncertain terms to the financial restrictions placed on them as a result, and the worry for the Tottenham faithful will be that they are following a similar pattern.

If Spurs decide not to cash in, they must attempt to try and get Alderweireld to commit to a new deal.

"I think it's so hard now because it's only four hours until the end and I don't have news now", Pochettino told a news conference.

The former leader of sweltering Singapore once said aircon was the key to his country's remarkable success. Met Éireann has dismissed a prediction that the current spell of warm weather could last into October.

"We are happy with our squad and we can not improve our squad".

Toby Alderweireld, Danny Rose and Mousa Dembele were all expected to leave this summer, and they still could if they are willing to move overseas. There is no point talking about players at another club.

"It is better to keep our squad all together, we believe a lot in our players".

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

Mauricio Pochettino has "no doubt" his Tottenham team will be stronger this season, even if the club fail to make a single signing in the summer transfer window. They need to try to be focused and ready to compete and give their best when I decide to put them on the pitch, and then be professional on the training ground. It told us we could not expect players to be signed or wages to be competitive while we opposed those ticket price rises.

He said: 'Being courageous is the most important thing.
