He ended up playing 229 times in total for the club and was a key part of the highly impressive Spurs team of recent years.

Mauricio Pochettino "totally understands" the hostile fan reaction towards Kyle Walker during Manchester City's 3-0 victory over Tottenham on Saturday.

However, Pochettino insists that he is not concerned about the money being spent around him and reassured fans that they will make a new signing before the end of the window. "We prioritise training and trying to get fit". "It is only to show him they were disappointed". It is very hard to get fit if you only focus on playing games.

Spurs are insistent they will not follow the trend of lavishing millions, and Vertonghen reckons they are finally ready to win silverware. We are calm because our squad is competitive squad.

They will be hoping that Wanyama can shake off any niggling injury concerns ahead of that but fans are also urging the club to dip into the transfer market to strengthen the squad.

The Spurs star scored two goals in 36 appearances in the Premier League last season as Tottenham finish in second place and seven points behind champions Chelsea.

Edwards is one of the most promising players to come out of the academy in decades - not even Harry Kane generated the amount of excitement as a teen that this kid does.

"He played against PSG and he suffered a small problem in his cartilage in his left knee", said Pochettino.

"But sure, for next week, he will be available to train again", the Argentine coach added.

The 18-year-old is yet to make a Premier League start for the north London outfit, however, he is viewed in very high stead by Mauricio Pochettino.
