Tottenham latest, Pochettino happy with squad, King offered academy role


A selection of the latest stories involving Tottenham Hotspur this Wednesday evening.

A deal for Ben Davies and Michel Vorm is now complete is almost done after the 21-year-old full-back was pictured training with the team on their tour of North America. 

He is expected to arrive from Swansea with Gylfi Sigurdsson likely to move in the opposite direction, whilst goalkeeper Michel Vorm has spoken about his move from the Liberty Stadium to White Hart Lane.

He was quoted in De Telegraaf in Holland, talking about competing with Hugo Lloris for the number one goalkeeping spot.

Vorm said: "Every club has two top goalkeepers in their squad. It suits the club's philosophy that there are two of us with Hugo and me, especially when we see that Tottenham is active in a lot of competitions."

Tottenham Head Coach Mauricio Pochettino believes he has an 'unbelievable' squad of players at White Hart Lane as he prepares for his first season in charge at the club.

The Argentine has said there will not be many changes to the first team after an outlay in excess of £100 million on players last season but is quoted by Sky Sports saying more players will be added to the squad.

Pochettino said: "We are very pleased with our squad.

"The club made a big investment last season and we have an unbelievable squad.

"We always need to improve and it is possible we will add some players, but there will not be many changes."

The London Evening Standard is reporting that Spurs are still hopeful of landing Real Socidedad winger Antoine Griezmann despite having a £15m bid rejected.

Elsewhere, former defender and captain Ledley King has been given a role of working with the club's academy at under-18 level.

Academy manager John McDermott spoke to the club's website about the move, saying: "We are now looking for Ledley to spend 2-3 days a week assisting our Under-18 group with their on and off pitch development.

"Using senior players as role models within our Academy is a scheme we are keen to nurture and develop further."
