Pochettino: Spurs silverware would be special for Kane

Pochettino: Spurs silverware would be special for Kane

Tottenham Hotspur are ready to open talks on extending the contracts of Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-min, and to hand Harry Kane a pay rise.

It's no secret that defence takes precedence in Big Sam's teams, but when asked if Pochettino thinks Everton will park the bus, he said, "I think Everton have good players, offensive players that play so well".

Alderweireld has made just 10 appearances for Tottenham this season in the Premier League, helping keep five clean sheets in those games, due to a hamstring injury the defender suffered back in the beginning of November, which is still keeping the star out of action.

But Levy is adamant that the duo will not be allowed to leave White Hart Lane at the end of the season.

Their lack of activity has come in stark contrast to most of the Premier League's top six.

Chelsea and Liverpool have already added to their squads this month, signing Ross Barkley and Virgil van Dijk respectively, while the Manchester clubs are vying for the signature of Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez, whom Arsene Wenger has said he will replace if he leaves. "I never look at what another team is doing". The manager believes that opportunities to make shrewd January signings are limited.




"You know better than me that if you want to sign players to help you, there must be an opportunity and it's hard to find this opportunity". They sit three points adrift of fourth-placed Liverpool in the table.

"I'm 100 per cent confident".

Spurs play Everton at Wembley on Saturday at 5.30pm.

Winks had an injection on his troublesome ankle on Monday, but is not available this weekend.

Levy also conceded that it is hard to get business done in the winter transfer window.
