Report: Pochettino wins an important battle, Levy 'hugely impressed' by his work

There is good news for the Tottenham Hotspur boss...

Tottenham Hotspur chief executive Daniel Levy is 'hugely impressed' by Mauricio Pochettino's work so far at White Hart Lane, according to the Daily Mirror.

Indeed, Levy has reportedly been so pleased with Pochettino's progress in north London that he has afforded him full control over transfer policy ahead of the coming summer.

Whereas Levy himself, Franco Baldini and more would previously take charge of transfer policy, the Argentine will now have the final say on player deals and will have to approve any deals conducted by the chief executive, as per the Mirror.

That means Pochettino has won an important battle that the likes of Andre Villas-Boas couldn't in the past do.

The 43-year-old has failed to get Tottenham into the top four at the first time of asking but was left with an uneven squad and will now be judged on how he does when buying and selling the players he wants to do.

Pochettino will work closely with Paul Mitchell during his transfer escapades, opening up a number of different possibilities for Spurs.

Is this a wise move for Tottenham - or has Levy placed too much faith in his manager?
