"It's not about adding because it's fashionable to sign players".

Mauricio Pochettino didn't manage to bring in any new signings this summer but the Tottenham manager expressed his delight at keeping his squad together with no key players leaving.

With no other deals completed, Spurs became the first club since the window began in 2003 not to register a new player.

'It is hard to understand for people in football that Tottenham didn't sign or didn't sell players but sometimes in football, you need to behave different'.

However, the Spurs boss could see his squad stretched this weekend as an update on confirmed the north Londoners will be without at least six players for the trip to the north east to face Newcastle.

Sources close to negotiations claim a £25million deal from the London club was never formally submitted, with the only official offer - made last month when Villa were battling a cash crisis - being a player-plus-cash offer of £3million and midfielder Josh Onomah.

"If you cannot add players who can improve your squad, the most important thing is to make sure you do not lose your best player". If we have all the squad thinking as individuals rather than as a collective game, you can not achieve what you want and can not succeed. It's about if you really need them or not and then if you can get your target or not.

"Our targets are always in the same level of Real Madrid or Manchester United or Manchester City, but for different circumstances we can not achieve that".

"For me they are part of the team".

"I am not anxious, not sad, I am so happy".

"I think I want to make clear that all are fit, but maybe we need to care for some players and not push them to compete, not take some rash decisions with some players due to their background or for different reasons that we are assessing now after Monday".

"There's no reason to not trust in our squad and no reason not to believe in our club or believe in what we can do".

He said: 'Being fearless is the most important thing.
