Pochettino reportedly planning to promote three Spurs youngsters

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino reportedly plans to turn to three of the club’s youngsters rather than new signings.

Spurs have endured a troubled season so far and have been linked with a number of players ahead of the January transfer window.

However, The Athletic reports that Pochettino is instead likely to give youth a chance rather than spend money.

Japhet Tanganga, Troy Parrott and Oliver Skipp are said to be in line for chances to show what they can do.

That would tally with recent comments by Pochettino, who has suggested that Spurs will not bring in signings when the transfer window reopens.

There has been speculation over the futures of several of his players, including Christian Eriksen and Toby Alderweireld.

But Pochettino insisted at a recent press conference that he does not expect any business in January.

“No, I don’t believe. Really. I believe in the players we have, I believe in the players that are at Tottenham today,” he said.

“I respect all opinions and I know they’ll be people that are going to say ‘we need to change or ‘we need to do something in or out’ but if it’s my decision, I’m going to stick with my players because I know they have the quality.

“It’s only to unlock some situations that is going on in their mind but we have great quality to be fighting for the things that we expect to fight for.”
