The 27-year-old full-back has been linked to Manchester United, though the latest reports have Chelsea throwing their hat into the ring.

"You can see the statement but at the same time I was a player and sometimes after seven months of not playing you are a bit frustrated. I don't think he's wrong there at all".

'We will add players who can strengthen the squad. We will work hard until the end to add more possibilities to have in the future. With the players we have we can compete in a very good way.

'Of course, we will sign, like every season, maybe on the last day.

Liverpool and Newcastle are leading the chase for the 'new Andy Carroll', Hartlepool kid Connor Simpson.

Rose, still 'some weeks' from a return to action after a knee injury, has been fined two weeks' wages and released an apology via his representatives Base moments before the Spurs manager was due to give his pre-match press conference.

Chelsea want more talented defenders as they prepare to fight on multiple fronts, having won the Premier League title last season and earned automatic Champions League qualification. "This was important and good", Pochettino said.

"Since January he's been working hard to fix his problem and our medical staff are working hard with him".

"He apologised to the club and chairman and manager and fans". What's all your thoughts on this because I am spewing at that interview this morning! No-one forces him to sign a contract. We are here in Tottenham, no-one forced him to sign and stay here.

"Not just because they will be better, but we need bodies".

I remember a more humble interview where he acknowledged that if it wasn't for Poch he wouldn't be anywhere near the player he is now!

"If you see the squad, it's obvious that we need a striker". The players were very calm.

'For me it's not a big issue, it is time to move on. For those who haven't read it he has said (and I'm paraphrasing here). It's time to start a new season, it's an exciting time. We are so calm.

The Daily Mirror say Chelsea plan to table a £60m bid for Southampton defender Van Dijk.

'We are so competitive and so ambitious.

"Manchester United love him and Luke Shaw loves Manchester United".

Pochettino revealed that he plans to speak to Rose on Saturday, claiming "it will not be a problem", and is certain he will remain at White Hart Lane. It is to be unique and try to be as strong and not have doubts when others have doubts and are nervous.

'We are calm and relaxed.
