Pochettino's Spurs kick off their FA Cup campaign in the third round against League Two (third-tier) outfit Tranmere Rovers on Friday before facing Chelsea in the first leg of the League Cup semi-final on Tuesday.

"Sometimes people take my words the wrong way". In that business there are different parties that are involved. He is showing his commitment.

The futures of several other players are likely to come under the microscope this month as a host of exits are expected.

He said: "No news is good news". But it's a negotiation with different parties, with different interests.

Although Spurs are pushing to compete on all fronts, he has yet to win a trophy since heading to England and he may feel a move to Spain or elsewhere in Europe offers him a better chance of honours, following the examples of Gareth Bale and Luka Modric. "At the moment I don't have any news".

Dembele, sidelined since November by an ankle injury, returned to training alongside Jan Vertonghen (thigh) on Thursday, but Pochettino was unable to guarantee the 31-year-old would remain at the club beyond the end of the January transfer window.

"I grew up with it, my Dad won it at West Ham in 1975 and 1980 so I grew up with a great understanding of how important it is", he said.

"I heard this name for the first time yesterday".

"There's many interested in this business". Most of their players could only stand and watch as Fernando Llorente scored a quickfire hat-trick after the break, to add to Son's individual effort and another strike from Aurier.

"Be careful because hundreds of players were related with the club and then never happened". "I think I [would have been] sacked a few years ago, for sure, with two or three Carabao Cups or FA Cups".
