Speaking to the press following Saturday’s 4-1 FA Cup victory over Colchester United, the Argentine stated: “There are a lot of rumours and I’m not going to comment on them. I’ll come in the morning for training. Then in the afternoon I will be at home and having a siesta.
“Then I’ll be watching football, maybe some game from Spain, and go to bed early because on Tuesday we have a big game against Norwich.”
No activity then? Not quite. Pochettino went on to say that Daniel Levy is likely to be a busy boy on deadline day, adding: “He will be at the training ground until 11 or 12 with three or four phones!”
In all likelihood we are more than likely to see people out rather than in, with a loan move back to Sevilla for Fazio rumoured to be on the cards.
However, with the rumour mill persistently linking Spurs with the likes of Dembele of Fulham and West Brom’s Saido Berahino, don’t underestimate Daniel Levy’s ability to pull something out of the bag. That wily old dog.
