Sources told ESPN FC that Grealish is open to the idea of a move to Tottenham as he wants to play in the Premier League and the Champions League. At a press conference hours before the transfer deadline the Argentinian all but confirmed there would be no signings, but declared himself happy with the situation and warned his players he expects them to feel the same way too.

"Building a new training ground, then finishing the lodge this summer was a massive investment". And then with Brexit it is worse because the cost is 30 per cent more.

For the first time since the summer transfer window was introduced 15 years ago, one team spent nothing: Tottenham.

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. Building a stadium that costs almost £1billion - that's is the truth, don't believe when they say £400million.

Deals for players like Danny Rose, Toby Alderweireld and Mousa Dembélé are yet to materialise however and Pochettino said he expected the players who remained at the club following the close of the window to knuckle down.

"It maybe looks bad [not to sign anyone] because of the perception and because of the history of football, but that is our decision - to keep the best players and to keep the squad".

"For me [that] is to be fearless".

"You need to respect all the opinions but of course we are a club that our decision was not to sign, (even though) it is the fashion to sign or because we are the only club in Europe that has not signed players. It's a fearless decision".

"If we are happy with our squad and can not improve our squad, sometimes it's better to keep our squad together". If we have all the squad thinking as individuals rather than as a collective game, you can not achieve what you want and can not succeed.

"I was so clear with everyone", Pochettino said. They need to give their best. "That is the key this season".
