Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has not ruled out the possibility of landing new players in the ongoing winter transfer window this January.

Currently, Spurs are without the likes of Jan Vertonghen, Eric Dier, Victor Wanyama and Lucas Moura through injuries.
But the highly-rated football manager insists he won’t be heading to the transfer market.
“It does not depend on some players leaving,”’ stressed Pochettino.
“It’s more about finding the right player that fits for us, not only on the football side, but a player that fits in all areas.
