St Marys Southampton

We detail Mauricio Pochettino's comments about potential new faces and departures at St. Mary's Stadium before tomorrow's 11pm deadline.

Ahead of this Saturday's game away at Fulham, Mauricio Pochettino fielded a number of questions as the transfers window nears its conclusion. 

Below are the key points and comments from the Saints boss...

Pochettino on Dani Osvaldo: "At the moment there is no news regarding Dani Osvaldo. But as I said before, there's still a day and a half left. There are many things that could happen in that time. It is something that the club will evaluate, if it does indeed happen. Anything is possible."

Pochettino on Jack Cork: "Jack Cork is a very important player for us and there is no possibility of him leaving the club."

Pochettino on incomings: "What I am saying is right now, signing someone who fits the profile of the player we are looking for is not easy."

Pochettino on deadline day: "I am very calm. We are fully aware that there is one day left. That in football is a very long time."

Pochettino on Danny Fox's departure: “I want to make public my gratitude to Danny Fox for his amazing professionalism during my time here and his great qualities as a player and a person. Matt Targett is going to train with us, and he has a chance of getting in the side if he performs at the level we look for.”

Pochettino on the Saints squad: "We have the tranquillity and calm to know that our squad is good enough, and there will not be many ins and outs."
