​Pochettino sets the record straight on new deal for Tottenham's Alli

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino says reports that Deli Alli and the club are in talks over a new contract are just speculation.

Speaking ahead of Tuesday's Carabao Cup clash with Barnsley at Wembley, Pochettino said it was just "rumours".

He added: "Like always I tell you, when something happens or if a decision happens the club will communicate but that is a rumour."

The Argentine boss was asked if the midfielder had approached him for advice on his representation.

Pochettino said: "He didn't ask about that and it's his business. Of course, every single player can ask me and can knock my door.

"I am open to giving advice but he didn't ask me and I cannot say more."
