Mauricio Pochettino commits long term future to Spurs

If true, it takes some of the optimism away from the announcement, given that Real and PSG were two clubs who have been linked with Pochettino in the past, so if he has an exit clause then it doesn't change a great deal from Tottenham's perspective; a vulnerability remains.

But the former Argentina global, who has steered Tottenham to top-four league finishes in each of the last three seasons, has confirmed he will lead the club into their new stadium for the 2018-2019 campaign.

Poch released a statement after he signed his new deal stating that he and chairman Daniel Levy "have spoken at length about our aspirations for this football club".

However, Pochettino's wishes could be hampered by spiralling costs for the new stadium, which reports say could hit £1 billion ($1.3 billion).

After securing UEFA Champions League football for a second consecutive season, Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly looking at parting ways with five first-team stars.

Last week the Argentine, 46, called on Levy to match his ambitions by being "brave" in the transfer market ahead of the moving to a new 62,000-capacity stadium from their temporary home of Wembley.

Pochettino will now be hoping to be able to guide his side to a genuine Premier League title challenge next season as they look to keep up their impressive displays.

And it appears as though Pochettino's wishes have been granted following his decision to sign a new long-term deal at the club.

"This is a special club - we always strive to be creative in the way we work both on and off the pitch and will continue to stick to our principles in order to achieve the success this Club deserves."

Assistants Jesus Perez, Miguel D'Agostino and Toni Jimenez also signed new deals to stay under Pochettino, who has managed Spurs since 2014.

Working with Pochettino would also be a very attractive proposition for Sessegnon and de Ligt, as the duo know they will get chances to play at Spurs and the way in which Dele Alli, Kane and others have developed proves that Poch can help them kick on to the next level.
