Daniel Levy has told the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust (THST) that the club will keep every player Mauricio Pochettino wants to retain this summer.

Kyle Walker was the only first-team player to leave the club last summer, joining Manchester City for a then-record fee for a defender.

Levy and Pochettino have repeatedly insisted Walker was sold for footballing reasons, and that no player will leave the club for any other reason.

That was reiterated during Tuesday’s meeting between THST and the club’s board, during which Levy claimed he and Pochettino are on the same page when it comes to transfer strategy.

The Spanish media has been keen to link Harry Kane with a move to Real Madrid in recent months, but Levy’s comments suggest the striker won’t be sold even if Spurs fail to qualify for the Champions League.

Toby Alderweireld has also been the subject of transfer speculation because of his contract situation, and there are suggestions Pochettino has backed the club’s decision to sell the Belgian this summer.

  1. Huge fan of Toby but cannot see Levy authorising the pay increase without it causing waves across all players and their agents. Unfortunately this looks like Toby will leave, great service to the club. But no one man bigger than the club. Only thing is how many top class players will we see leave for the same reasons?

  2. I have suspected That Toby would leave for some time. The club will not let him run down contract to final year so if no deal agreed will go in the summer hopefully abroad
    . Other players on longer deals so situation different.
