Pochettino asked whether Lennon will leave Spurs - what's his answer?

Mauricio Pochettino has remained coy over his January transfer plans at Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has refused to rule out departures from White Hart Lane over the coming weeks. 

Spurs are reported by the Daily Mail to be keen on selling a number of their fringe players in the January transfer window and Pochettino will only added further fuel to the rumours of impending departures by staying coy today.

One of the players said to be close to leaving Spurs is Aaron Lennon - with Hull City closing on a deal according to the Telegraph - and Pochettino confirmed that he could follow Kyle Naughton, who joined Swansea City, out the door next week. 

“I think we need to ask him if he is not happy with his situation. I think I can explain the situation of Kyle but Aaron is our player, he is in our plans," he is quoted as saying by Tottenham Journal

“He does not need to speak about it. All players who don’t play with regularity in the starting XI want to play. This is explicit. Players do not need to explain to me that they want to play more - I know.

“Will anyone else leave? You never know. I am happy with all [the players] but the situation like Kyle Naughton maybe happens next week.”

Younes Kaboul, Paulinho and Roberto Soldado have also been tipped to leave Tottenham by the London Evening Standard as Pochettino reportedly plans an overhaul of his squad.

Although Spurs have performed well under the Argentine so far, Pochettino still believes improvements need to be made. 

Tottenham have also been linked with signing a range of players over the window so far but they are in a position where they need departures before any arrivals can take place. 

As a result, if Lennon does go, Spurs could make a move for Feyenoord winger Jean-Paul Boetius, according to the Mail
