Mauricio Pochettino Downplays Dele Alli Contract Talks Reports

Mauricio Pochettino says reports that Deli Alli and Tottenham are in talks over a new contract are just speculation.

Some newspapers have stated that the 21-year-old England international had opened negotiations over another deal, having only agreed a long-term extension a year ago.

Speaking ahead of Tuesday’s Carabao Cup clash with Barnsley at Wembley, Pochettino said it was just “rumours”.

He added: “Like always I tell you, when something happens or if a decision happens the club will communicate but that is a rumour.”

The Argentine boss was asked if the midfielder had approached him for advice on his representation.

Pochettino said: “He didn’t ask about that and it’s his business. Of course, every single player can ask me and can knock my door.

“I am open to giving advice but he didn’t ask me and I cannot say more.”
