Report claims Levy is promising not to sell Harry Kane in bid to keep Pochettino

Daniel Levy is reportedly attempting to keep Mauricio Pochettino at Spurs.

According to The Telegraph, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy will reject any approaches for manager Mauricio Pochettino - and will promise to keep Harry Kane to make sure the boss stays.

Spurs have been enjoying a superb season, and currently sit just five points off the top of the Premier League table, as they mount a surprise push for the title.

Players such as Toby Alderweireld, Eric Dier, Dele Alli and Harry Kane have all had outstanding season, and deserve huge praise - but the mastermind behind Tottenham's success this season is, without question, manager Pochettino.

The Argentine, who left Southampton to become Tim Sherwood's replacement at Spurs in the summer of 2014, enjoyed a decent debut campaign, but few could have anticipated him turning Spurs into title challengers this season.

His development of young players coupled with his attractive brand of football have now seemingly attracted interest, with The Independent reporting that both Chelsea and Manchester United have an interest in making Pochettino their new manager this summer.

However, The Telegraph report that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has no intention of letting Pochettino leave White Hart Lane, and will reject any and all approaches for his highly-rated manager.

It's also stated that Levy is promising Pochettino that he won't sell star striker Harry Kane this summer, in a bid to guarantee that Pochettino's head won't be turned by interest from other clubs.

If Spurs can keep Pochettino and avoid selling their top young players, they will not only be title challengers this season but also for years to come - but Levy will be well aware of the threat from other clubs, having been forced to sell Dimitar Berbatov, Luka Modric and Gareth Bale over the years.
