Tottenham Hotspur are still yet to sign anyone this summer.
Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino spoke to reporters after his side's 4-1 defeat to Girona at the weekend, and offered his biggest hint yet that he will not be bringing any fresh faces into the club this summer, as quoted by Football.London.
Spurs finished in third position in the Premier League table last term, securing Champions League football for the third successive season, but the pressure to win a major trophy is really beginning to mount on Pochettino and his players.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has always been frugal with his approach to transfers, but Spurs fans are growing increasingly more frustrated at their club's lack of activity this summer, especially with their rivals spending lavishly.
Pochettino addressed the media over the weekend, and responded when asked whether he was relaxed with Tottenham's current situation in the transfer market, as quoted by Football.London:
"No I am not relaxed. I am a coach and when you are a coach you cannot be relaxed," he said. "You need to be confident and trust in the people that you have, and the way we work. But of course football is always about adding more quality every season like different clubs, our contenders are doing. If we cannot do that we need to try to be creative and of course the help from the younger players would be amazing. They showed they can help us if we don’t sign players."
Spurs kick off their new campaign with a trip to St James' Park to take on Newcastle on Saturday, by which time the transfer window will be closed, and the way things are going, Pochettino will not have any new signings to call upon.
