Pochettino keen to keep Spurs squad together

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has reiterated his desire to keep his current Spurs squad together despite continued speculation over a number of his players, Sky Sports is reporting.

The Argentine boss made clear he wanted all of his players to remain at the club during the transfer window in the face of heavy speculation over the likes of Aaron Lennon, Kyle Naughton, Roberto Soldado and Paulinho this month.

Indeed reports have been confirmed that Naughton is on the verge of completing a £5m move to Premier League rivals Swansea while reported interest from Spurs for Everton winger Kevin Mirallas could see the Lennon move in the opposite direction,

Soldado meanwhile is drawing interest from German side Bayer Leverkusen having continued to struggle so much following his £26m arrival at White Hart Lane in 2013.

Pochettino stated he was happy with the striker despite his lack of goal return and repeated he does not want to lose any of his player over the next ten days.

He said: “I am happy with him. 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.”

The former Southampton manager eventually killed the line of questioning over transfers by bluntly stating no one is for sale.
