Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has insisted to Football.London that he is not concerned about losing players in the summer.

Tottenham’s brilliant form in the Premier League this season, has thrust their leading stars into the limelights.

The likes of Dele Alli, Toby Alderweireld and Eric Dier and have all recently been linked with moves away from White Hart Lane.

However, Pochettino insists that he has full faith in Daniel Levy to reject bids for his key players.

“When a player will leave the club is always our decision,” Pochettino said.

“All the players have contracts for the next two to three years minimum.

“We are not worried. I invite all the clubs that want a Tottenham player to come to the training ground to come and see Daniel Levy.”

Alderweireld is the latest player to be linked with a move away from Spurs, with Inter Milan touted as a possible destination (Football.London).

And when specifically asked about the Belgian international, Pochettino issued a defiant response.

“I never speak about rumours. So it’s another rumour,” the Argentine boss said.

“You have to speak with Daniel.

“Some club is interested in some player. It’s very clear that you need to knock the door of Daniel Levy.

“Toby is in his second season at the club. Nobody has any doubts about Toby.”

Tottenham have had a history of losing key players, but they have done a brilliant job of trying down their stars on long-term contracts recently.

Spurs’ squad have progressed hugely under Pochettino so far, and now appear to be genuine Premier League title contenders.

Spurs are looking to take a step closer to winning their first major silverware since Pochettino took charge this weekend, with their next match coming against Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley.
