Spurs: unlikely to bring in new players this summer?

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has joked that it feels like Spurs have been "banned" from making new signings, such as the situation at White Hart Lane. The club, who are shortly moving in to their new stadium, have been quiet on the transfer market in recent years and this summer will be likely the same as Spurs seek to pay off the debts incurred for the impending stadium switch.

Tottenham were unable to bring in any new players in the January transfer window and prior to today's crunch game against Liverpool in the Premier League, reporters asked Pochettino if he feels new players will arrive.

Poch replied: "In the last two transfer windows we cannot sign one player, it is like we are banned like has happened with some clubs now!

"As we are focussed on different things [when comparing Liverpool and Tottenham], that is why we are different, and we must be focussed on operating in different ways, but always being competitive as football is the most important thing in this company.

"Liverpool have an unbelievable squad and they are a team who every season were adding more quality. Our aims are very different."
