Pochettino reveals Spurs to make up to four additions

Asked if Rose had a future at the club, Pochettino said: "Yes, of course".

In his three years at the club, Pochettino has helped Spurs to a 5th, 3rd and 2nd place finish. Indeed, combining the last two campaigns points totals together puts Spurs on the top of the pile.

With one of the best squads in the country, featuring talented England players Harry Kane and Dele Alli, Pochettino's hopes of ending the club's wait for a first league title since 1961 rest on finding an antidote to the hoodoo. With a new £750 million stadium to pay for, trips such as this and the subsequent U.S. tour are absolutely vital.

Therefore, the Pochettino project has been based on maximising the young talent coming out of the Tottenham academy.

Glass half full: Tottenham already had an excellent team and their young players are only going to be better for their experience over the last couple of seasons.

Q Would you prefer if Spurs won the Champions League or Premier League?

Provisional squad: Lloris, Vorm, Lopez, Davies, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Dier, Wimmer, Wanyama, Shashoua, Dembele, Eriksen, Alli, Sissoko, Onomah, Lesniak, Winks, Edwards, Son, Janssen, Kane, Walker-Peters.

He said most of the controversy was outside of the club as speculation ran rampant that Rose was trying to engineer a transfer to Chelsea or Manchester United.

Making up a deficit of that order won't be easy this season as Tottenham have the thorny issue of playing their home games at Wembley while White Hart Lane is being redeveloped. If you remember five years ago, people said 'who is Pochettino?' I'm sure they used Chrome or Google or Yahoo to find out!

Both have had disappointing transfer windows with the north London side so far failing to bring in a single player, while Rafa Benitez has spoken publicly about his dismay.

Pochettino though is of the belief that the club will make quality additions later in the month.

Rose has made similar sentiments to Walker, albeit in a less dignified manner.

Rose's sentiment has reportedly been backed by other members of the Spurs' squad, who feel that they too should be paid more than Levy's strict wage structure allows.

There is little doubt that Spurs' Wembley record will improve the more they become accustomed to the stadium, but it is hard to see them boasting form at home that even remotely resembles that from last season.
