New Tottenham deal will help keep top Spurs players - Pochettino

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has claimed that his commitment to the club will help in keeping star players at the club.

The Argentine manager recently committed his future to the North London club by agreeing to a new five-year deal, which will keep him at the club until 2021.

Although the extension is not yet officially confirmed, Pochettino is confident the club will be able to hold onto the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Toby Alderweireld, Hugo Lloris and Eric Dier while attracting top quality additions to White Hart Lane to continue the club's resurgence.

"I think it is important for the players and the potential players that will come that they don't hear rumours about whether Pochettino will be here or not," he said.

"I did not need assurances. I didn't ask for anything.

"In the moment that the president wanted to extend my contract, he showed his ambition. The players are very happy here. I want to be involved in the future of the club."
