Pochettino hints Brexit influenced Spurs' lack of transfers

The club were linked with a number of names, notably Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish, for who they had a £25million bid rejected on Wednesday.

"I am responsible for what I told you [in May] or what I tell you, but I can not be responsible for what you believe that I wanted to tell you", he said.

However, what is obvious is that if Jack Grealish does gain almost a triple-your-money pay rise, he's got Spurs' hesitancy to say thank you to. Only four hours to the end.

"If we are happy with our squad and can not improve our squad, sometimes it's better to keep our squad together".

But Pochettino believes the club have acted on his demand in a different way.

"What the club is doing is showing that it is so fearless because building a new training ground, finishing the (player) lodge this summer is a massive investment".

"I didn't see Tottenham buying anyone anyway, but I'd have them fourth", Merson told Sky Sports.

"We have a very good squad, with very good players and it is very hard to add players to that", Pochettino added.

"If we are happy with our squad and can not improve our squad, sometimes it's better to keep our squad together".

"Our targets are always in the same level of Real Madrid or Manchester United or Manchester City, but for different circumstances we can not achieve that".

"With Brexit it is worse because the cost is 30 percent more - that is a drama, I feel sorry for the English people - and then keeping the best players, for me [that] is to be courageous".

Of course, we are open to improving but if you can't improve the most important is to keep your best team and players.

A new contract will see the England Under-21 global move on to more than £40,000 a week at Villa Park, as Bruce keeps the young star on side in a bid to make it third time lucky and return to the Premier League come May.

"I am so happy in the way they come back to training on Monday". It's a massive challenge for us to try to deliver the best tools for them to get fit and then to prepare them for the whole season, not only for one, two or three games or for one month.
