Tottenham boss Pochettino: I don't want to buy

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino admits they will not try to buy in January - if the decision is down to him.

Jan Vertonghen, Toby Alderweireld, Christian Eriksen have entered the final year of their contracts and can leave for nothing in the summer, while the likes of Danny Rose, Victor Wanyama and Serge Aurier failed to secure exits before the season started.

Asked ahead of Saturday's visit of Watford if the club would be busy in the January window, Pochettino said: "No, I don't believe so. I believe in the players we have, the players that are at Tottenham today.

"I respect the opinion of people who say we need to change something, in or out. But if it is my decision, I am going to stick with players because I know they have the quality. It's only to unlock some situations that are going on in their minds. We have great quality to achieve the things we are expected to."
