​Pochettino not expecting any Tottenham departures

Mauricio Pochettino expects Toby Alderweireld, Danny Rose and Mousa Dembele to stay at Tottenham despite the trio being linked with moves away from the club this summer, reports Sky Sports.

Unlike in England, the transfer window remains open around Europe's other top divisions for another week and Spurs could still receive bids, with players still allowed to leave Premier League clubs.

"I expect all the players (to be here)," Pochettino said. "I am working like if all the people are going to be here. I cannot work thinking if they are going to be here tomorrow or not.

"Not only these names, but for different names, an offer can arrive from another club. When an offer arrives maybe tomorrow or this afternoon we are going to consider it.

"After four years here, for me we start from zero, giving the players the opportunity to play and perform. Not thinking about what happened in the past or what is going to happen in the future."
