Tottenham create unwanted EPL transfer window history

Spurs were frustrated in attempts to sign Jack Grealish from Aston Villa this summer, but further recruits were dependent on players leaving the club first.

Thursday's deadline passed without Spurs signing any new players, either permanently or on loan, so coach Mauricio Pochettino will open the club's new stadium with the same squad that finished third in the Premier League in May.

Both Dembele and Alderweireld will now run their contracts into the final 12 months as a result and will be free to talk to foreign clubs from January while Rose is tied to Tottenham until 2021 after signing a long-term deal two years ago.

"If you can't add a player that can improve your squad, the most important thing is to make sure you do not lose your best players and I think that was a great job from the club to keep the best players and the manager".

Pochettino's rallying cry at the end of last season calling on the club to be "brave" and "take risks" has not been seen in the transfer market.

"That maybe looks bad because of the perception and because of the history of football, but that is our decision - to keep the best players and to keep the squad".

"Of course people in football find it hard to understand that Tottenham didn't sign or sell players, but sometimes in football you need to behave differently".

Spurs kick off their Premier League season with a visit to Newcastle on Saturday.

The Scotland worldwide was a key man during a loan spell at Villa Park last season, but as the Villans hit financial difficulty early this summer, they were unable to put anything in place that allowed them to keep the playmaker. "I am the boss and if I expect from you to do something, then you need to provide it".
