Mauricio Pochettino says that Tottenham Hostpur will not bring in many new players this summer.

New Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has said that he does not anticipate many new arrivals at the club this summer.

Seven players signed for Spurs 12 months ago following the £86m sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid, but Pochettino dismissed the idea of a similar overhaul in the coming weeks.

"We have a very good and big squad," he is quoted as saying by "Last summer the club made a big effort during the window and I believe in these players. We are always looking to improve but we don't expect big change.

"It's a different club to Southampton. Tottenham is a bigger club and we need to win, but not only win, we need to create a good philosophy. Our philosophy is exciting football, pressing attacking football.

"This is our target for the moment. During the season the targets will come."

Pochettino led Southampton to eighth in the Premier League last season before signing a five-year deal with the North London club in May.
