Tottenham ready 30 million bid for Aston Villa's Jack Grealish

The Aston Villa midfielder's future has been the subject of plenty of speculation this summer, with Tottenham believed to be one of several teams trying to sign him from his boyhood club.

Tottenham Hotspur became the first Premier League club since the summer transfer window began to fail to sign a single player but Mauricio Pochettino said he was happy for the club to "behave differently".

Spurs failed to make an addition to their squad over the summer, meaning they will go into the new season with the same squad that finished the last one.

If Spurs decide not to cash in, they must attempt to try and get Alderweireld to commit to a new deal.

"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.

Toby Alderweireld, Danny Rose and Mousa Dembele could still leave in the next few weeks, but Pochettino has been able to keep hold of the likes of Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Kieran Trippier.

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.


"We are happy with our squad and we can not improve our squad".

"I am not anxious, I am not sad, I am so happy".

'Once you can not change anything, then you need to change your mindset and think about the team, ' he said.

"I think it was a great job from the club to keep the best players - and the best manager".

'I am happy to keep all the squad together, there were many rumours during the summer about players out, ' he said. "Drama is many things in life but football is joy".

"I think I want to make clear that all are fit, but maybe we need to care for some players and not push them to compete, not take some rash decisions with some players due to their background or for different reasons that we are assessing now after Monday".

"If all the players today are thinking in a collective target, we can be competitive".
