Spurs achieved goal as Brexit influenced lack of transfers - Pochettino

Asked if Tottenham's players understand the lack of new arrivals, Pochettino responded: "They don't need to understand".

It was reported Spurs had a £25m bid for Grealish rejected earlier this week as Villa's new owners have insisted that the England under-21 global would not leave before the transfer deadline on Thursday.

But despite Spurs' lack of summer activity, Pochettino has refused to panic, insisting he has a very competitive squad ahead of their league opener at Newcastle - live on Sky Sports on Saturday. But I am happy to keep all the squad together.

The window remains open to European clubs until the end of August, so there is still the possibility of players going out even after the English deadline passes.

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.

Alderweireld was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United but firm interest never materialised.

"We have a very good squad, we have very good players and it is not easy to add players that improve that", Pochettino said.

"We didn't sell players and with 25 players in the squad it is hard to add players".

" "It's not about adding because it's fashionable. I am the boss and if I expect from you to do something, then you need to provide it".

"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".

"I am so happy with the way they came back to training on Monday".

Mauricio Pochettino has conceded that Tottenham Hotspur are going to struggle to bring in any players in the remaining hours of the Premier League transfer window.

The Argentine said: 'If we have all the squad thinking as individuals rather than as a collective, you can not succeed.

Having already sold Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus during this transfer window, club president Florentino Perez needs to add a "Galactico" to his Real Madrid squad in order to appease restless fans and he has apparently identified Eriksen as the man he wants at the Bernabeu.

"Of course we didn't sell players and with 25 players in the squad it's hard to add".

"If we can not improve our squad it's better to keep it together".

But Pochettino believes all three are at risk of losing focus and has urged them to forget about their futures and contribute to Tottenham's season instead.
