Georges-Kevin Nkoudou On Bench - Tottenham Hotspur Team vs Wolves Confirmed

Mauricio Pochettino

The Belgium defender will now be contracted to Spurs until the summer of 2020, having been due to be a free agent at the end of the season.

Pochettino admits there was stronger public support for Leicester's shock title charge in 2015-16 than there was for Spurs, but he does not expect any team to earn any favours in this term's tough battle.

Asked whether Spurs intend to activate the clause, Pochettino told a news conference: "Yes, for sure, it's obvious".

Spurs are also likely to be without Serge Aurier (groin), Mousa Dembele (ankle), Eric Dier (appendicitis), Jan Vertongen (thigh) and Victor Wanyama (knee).

While Vertonghen and Davinson Sánchez have struggled with injuries this season, Alderweireld has been a mainstay making 24 appearances as Spurs have made themselves Premier League contenders, with the 5-0 win over Bournemouth on Boxing Day taking them above Manchester City into second.

I think Man Utd are going to go huge next summer to resurrect them amongst the very best.

"We're always open [to signing players in January] but it's going to be hard - maybe not impossible but hard", Pochettino said.

The report claims that Tottenham would have to receive that £25m offer 14 or more days before the end of the 2019 summer transfer window.

Pochettino said Spurs will need to sell players in January before they can think about signing anyone and added it will be hard to recruit.

He added: "It depends on players out and then we're going to see if we can add some quality to help the team". We go to compete, play, realising what you have to do, stick to your tasks, have a game plan and play the game.
