Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino: 'Georges-Kevin N'Koudou needs games'

Saturday, 13 Jan, 2018

"If you want to sign players [in January], there must be an opportunity and it's hard to find these opportunities", Pochettino said.

The Senegal global has been out with a hamstring injury, which forced him to miss Everton's matches with Manchester United and Liverpool, however, he is set for a return to action at Wembley Stadium against Spurs.

He appeared to leave the door open to a possible transfer earlier this week when he said his willingness to stay at Spurs would depend on their ability to win silverware.

"Hey, calm, calm, our fans because Daniel is very good".

Lennon - who scored in a 1-1 draw with Spurs in January 2016 and is expected to feature on Saturday - made just three league starts under Pochettino, with his best performance coming against the Toffees in a 2-1 win in November 2014. However, they are still scoring goals and their signing of Tosun will only improve them going forward so we're going for Spurs to win and both teams to net.

"He left because of the style, of course". However, if Spurs manage to keep hold of their two megastars, they will be content on a brighter road ahead for the club. "Every single player that we want to keep, I can assure you will be playing for Tottenham Hotspur next season", he said. The players need new challenges, like managers or maybe you [in the media] change newspapers or websites? With neither player booked and the incident having been escalated to an FA panel, this is not the last we will hear about this coming together. "They need new motivation and challenges".

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has been asked about Kane's future several times this season.

Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks will miss Saturday's game against Everton because of an ongoing ankle problem. His is not the profile of a typical offensive player.

The Everton winger, 30, was sectioned under the Mental Health Act last May but has not only put his problems behind him, he has openly talked about the issues. "That is my opinion".

This decision to make no new singings is understandable from Tottenham's perspective as prices of players often go up highly during this winter period, which makes nearly every signing financially unsound.
