Spurs silent on Morgan

TOTTENHAM manager Mauricio Pochettino believes he has an "unbelievable squad", but refused to be drawn on any attempt to recruit Morgan Schneiderlin from Southampton.

French midfielder Schneiderlin is determined to join his former Saints manager at White Hart Lane, yet new St Mary's boss Ronald Koeman insists the 24-year-old is not for sale.

It remains to be seen whether the £15million-rated Frenchman will eventually be able to leave ahead of the closing of the transfer window.

Pochettino has already brought in the likes of goalkeeper Michael Vorm and defenders Ben Davies and Eric Dier - signings the Argentinian feels can help the north London club in their quest to break back into the Premier League's top four. "It (new signings) is not my concern. I think we have an unbelievable squad," said the Tottenham manager.

"Last season the club made a big investment and they signed unbelievable players. The most important thing is to develop our players and to provide the best team to play on the pitch."

When pressed on Schneiderlin, the former Saints boss said: "No, it is not my style to speak about a player from another club, I don't like that."
