Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has reportedly revealed plans to bring in three more additions in the summer after signing a new five-year deal worth £42.5 million with Premier League outfit.

Reacting after extending his deal, the 46-year-old Pochettino who has led Spurs into three successive Champions League campaigns, said: “I am honoured to have signed a new long-term contract as we approach one of the most significant periods in the club's history and be the manager that will lead this team into our new world-class stadium.”

Pochettino, whose coaching staff have also signed new deals, had sparked concerns over his future after ending the season with an epic 5-4 win over Leicester, but Thursday's new deal ends fears among Spurs fans that the man who has transformed their club could defect to a European rival.

Pochettino is now set to perform significant surgery this summer to raise funds and reshape his squad in readiness for Tottenham's move into their new stadium next season.
