Aston Villa ready to offer Jack Grealish new deal with star man looking set to stay

Tottenham make £25m bid to sign 22-year-old – report

But despite Spurs' lack of summer activity, Pochettino has refused to panic, insisting he has a very competitive squad ahead of their league opener at Newcastle - live on Sky Sports on Saturday.

Grealish, whose future has been the subject of intense speculation for the whole summer, trained at Villa's Bodymoor Heath training ground on Thursday morning and club insiders are now confident he won't be sold before the 5pm transfer deadline.

Spurs were open to offloading others, such as Toby Alderweireld and Danny Rose, with Pochettino not keen on having unsettled players on the fringes of his squad who could potentially be disruptions as the season goes on.

With so many Tottenham players involved in the latter stages of the World Cup, Pochettino has had little time to work with the whole squad leading into the first game.

"I am the boss and if I expect you to do something then you need to provide it".


"It's true our targets are always the same level as Manchester United, Manchester City or Real Madrid but for different circumstances we can't achieve that". I think the club is doing an unbelievable effort to try to finish the stadium as soon as possible, and the lodge is finished at the training ground.

If we are happy with our squad and can not improve our squad, sometimes it's better to keep our squad together.

We didn't sell players and with 25 players in the squad it is hard to add players.

But Pochettino has warned that he will demand full commitment from anyone who is still at the club after the continental window closes.

"If you can't add a player that can improve your squad, the most important thing is to make sure you do not lose your best players and I think that was a great job from the club to keep the best players and the manager".
