Tottenham have yet to sign anyone during this summer transfer window.

Chelsea manager Conte caused something of a stir earlier this week when talking about Spurs' progression as a club not being as vital as that of others, before labelling striker Harry Kane as his flawless forward.

"I like to show respect to people that behave another way, only I expect the same from people that compete with us". I'm just looking forward to the start of the season, we have two important games in pre-season to look forward to, get a few more minutes on the board.

The 23-year-old wants a move to Man United but Spurs have been typically averse to doing business with another Manchester club, reportedly rejecting a £60m advance for the midfielder's services.

"But it's the same for us because it's our own pressure and our own ambition".

Spurs have come close to clinching their first top division league title since 1961 but could only finish in the top three during the last two seasons. They are yet to win a major trophy since the League Cup triumph in 2008.

"Our moment will arrive", Pochettino added. We have a plan. They have invested more money than us and you can see for us we have a lot of young players on the bench.

"Be sure we will move in the market to try to improve the squad. It's true that it's so early and we're calm because our squad is competitive". Maybe today they have a little bit of an advantage, they are ahead of us because they have signed and kept the players that they want.

However, speaking after the defeat by City, Pochettino is confident that the East African will be back in time for the Lilywhites' Premier League opener away at Newcastle on August 13.
