Tottenham boss Pochettino happy to keep Alderweireld

With the Premier League transfer market closing at 1600 GMT, Tottenham are set to be the only top-flight side not to make a signing since the end of last season.

Spurs will be desperate to be one of the main challengers for the Premier League title next season as they look to try and win their first trophy under Mauricio Pochettino.

The tonic to that lack of transfer activity is that Spurs have been able to keep all of their top stars, with a number of them tied down to new deals. Indeed, Rose is talking to European clubs including Schalke about a loan move.

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.

"We have a very good squad, with very good players, and it is very hard to add players to that. We work to improve the squad, but when it is not possible, it is not possible and we move on".

United boss Jose Mourinho has been interested in signing Alderweireld from Tottenham since last summer and the 29-year-old was reportedly ready to reject all other clubs in order to join the Red Devils. Then you need to change your mind and think about the team and the collective.

"I am not anxious, not sad, I am so happy". But on £20,000-per-week he is now among the lowest paid first-team players at the club and Villa will offer a deal which better reflects his importance to the team.

Tottenham "achieved their objective" and did a "great job" by keeping their best player in the transfer window, says manager Mauricio Pochettino.

"Of course we didn't sell players and with 25 players in the squad it's hard to add". If we are happy with our squad and can not improve our squad, sometimes it's better to keep our squad together. If all the players today are thinking about a collective target, we can be competitive.

"The most important thing is we're so positive and of course we're going to challenge for big things this season too".
