Jack Grealish TEAMtalk

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino seemed to rubbish links of a fresh Jack Grealish bid when the transfer window re-opens in January. 

Spurs became the first team in Premier League history in the summer to not sign a single player, and Pochettino has been questioned persistently since over when he will splash the cash.

The lack of investment in players hasn’t affected the side’s performance on the pitch, with Pochettino’s side sitting 3rd with eleven wins in their opening 15 games.

Rumours of another attempt to sign Grealish have emerged recently after the London club’s failed attempts to lure the attacking midfielder away from Aston Villa in the summer.

Grealish moved to dismiss claims that he was unsettled at Villa Park after the move fell through, telling Sky Sports: “The speculation was difficult to deal with because every young player wants to play at the top, especially when it’s a team in the Champions League.

“But when it didn’t happen, it didn’t bother me at all, because my dream as a kid was to play for Aston Villa and I would never ever take that for granted, so I got my head down and now hopefully I can get this club back to where it belongs.”

Pochettino speaking in his press conference claimed there is little room for new arrivals. He said:”Look there are plenty of players we are related to. It’s difficult to talk about rumours and names.

“We will see what happens in January. We have a full squad, it’s impossible to sign players if we don’t have the space.

“Look at what happened with the Champions League [squad], we don’t have enough space at the moment and it makes no sense to talk about players.”
