Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino is confident the club will be fine without having bought an extra striker.

Tottenham Hotspur head coach Mauricio Pochettino is confident the club will continue their success despite having decided not to buy an extra striker in January.

Speaking to The Mirror, he explained he re-iterated comments from earlier in the season suggesting Nacer Chadli and Heung-Min Son can play up front in place of top scorer Harry Kane if required.

Pochettino is also aware of strikers in the club's academy who he can call upon if the situation demands it.

The two he is interested in are teenage pair Shayon Harrison and Kazaiah Sterling.

He said: "We have younger players that train with us like Shayon [Harrison] and, in behind, [Kazaiah] Sterling. Also, we are in February. We have three months of competition in front of us.

"It's always difficult to bring players in who need time to settle. We have a perfect balance now."

Shayon Harrison, 18,  was pictured training with the first team squad this week, along with young defender Cameron Carter-Vickers.

Harrison was invited to train with the England senior squad last season along with Harry Winks, the club reported on their official website at the time.

He was prolific for the under-18 side last season with 15 goals in 18 games, and has since made the step up to under-21 football, scoring four goals and providing three assists in 11 appearances this season.

Kazaiah Sterling is a year younger at 17, and is an England youth international. He has played one under-21 game this season, and managed to score in it.
