Mauricio Pochettino provides latest update on Tottenham transfers

The Spurs manager doesn't expect too much transfer activity at White Hart Lane in January

Mauricio Pochettino has played down the likelihood of Tottenham Hotspur making any signings in the January transfer window.

The Spurs boss recruited five new players in the summer transfer window after the north London side finished in third place last term.

Kenya international Victor Wanyama has proven a popular signing with the Tottenham supporters after a return of two goals in the 2016-17 season so far.

However, Dutch striker Vincent Janssen and France midfielder Moussa Sissoko have struggled to make telling impacts since their respective big-money moves to Tottenham.

Spurs will take on Pochettino’s former club Southampton in their next Premier League fixture on Wednesday afternoon.

Speaking ahead of his return to St Mary’s, Pochettino appeared to pour cold water on talk of Tottenham making any signings in the January transfer window.

“Maybe on the last day, maybe. It’s like before,” Pochettino is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

“It’s too difficult to improve your squad in January, for all the clubs. I don’t expect too much movement.

“I am happy with the squad. At the same time I recognise it is always very difficult to improve the squad in January.

“The best players, it is difficult for their teams to allow the good players to leave halfway through the season.

“If some special situation happens, maybe we need to be open but it will be tough or difficult to improve the squad in that period.”

Tottenham have won their last two Premier League games thanks to victories over Swansea City and Burnley at White Hart Lane.
