​Tottenham sweat on Davinson Sanchez work permit

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping to have new signing Davinson Sanchez involved against Burnley this weekend but admits it all depends on how quickly a work permit can be issued for the Colombia international.

"The work permit, we are waiting," he said when asked about the former Ajax defender. "We will see if he is available to be selected for the weekend. At the moment, we will see.

"For me, the important thing is that he is so young - 21 years old. He is one of the most important and talented young players in Europe. He is so fast. We are so pleased to sign him and have him with us."
