"Tottenham are a club who in three-and-a-half years I saw in the media, minimum 100 names and out of them we signed only a few".
Tottenham entertain Everton on Saturday with assurances from chairman Daniel Levy that the likes of Harry Kane and Dele Alli will not be leaving this month or at the end of the season. Ever since rising to prominence last season, the England global has been donning an imperative role at the club and has established himself as a proven attacking prospect alongside Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen.
"Until today, now, no-one is close to arriving in this transfer window", Pochettino said. "It's about how I believe, how we believe, and how we make things happen".

Keita was booked in the second half, his fifth yellow card of the season ensuring he'll be suspended for the following game. Hoffenheim had earlier missed their chance to move back to the top three after drawing 1-1 at lowly Werder Bremen.
"You know better than me that if you want to sign players to help you, there must be an opportunity and it's hard to find this opportunity", Pochettino said.
"But January is always a very hard window". "The fact that the Spurs are taking him with them into the future means so much to us all".
The England star has four years to run on a £60,000-per-week deal.
"We hope Danny can be available again in a couple of weeks", Pochettino said.
