Tottenham boss Mourinho cools Ings talk

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho insists he's happy with his striker options.

Mourinho says Tottenham have no need for another striker as he refused to discuss Southampton's Danny Ings.

In-form England ace Ings, 28, has been linked with Spurs in the past week.

But Tottenham chief Mourinho said: “Let's go bit by bit… Two strikers, we are not a team that needs a third striker because the third striker is Sonny (Heung-Min Son).

"We don't need more than two. We have the best.

"We are happy with Carlos (Vinicius), Carlos is not our player. He is a Benfica player but he is one that we are helping to develop and he is helping us when he is asked for. We are happy with the situation.

"Ings, I refuse totally to say any word about him because he is a Southampton player and I respect that."
