Tottenham ready 30 million bid for Aston Villa's Jack Grealish

Toby Alderweireld and Danny Rose continue to be linked with exits, but surely it is unthinkable for Daniel Levy to sanction any outgoings without securing new players for an already lightweight squad?

The Argentine boss said at the end of last season that Spurs were in a situation where they needed to "be courageous and take risks". "Building a new training ground, finishing this summer the (player's) lodge was a massive investment".

The bid from Spurs has been rejected, and Villa any further bid - be it from the North London club or any other team - will also be rebuffed.

A surprise name on the list is that of Genk star Sander Berge.

The summer market shut for the Premier League today with Alderweireld still a Spurs player.

Therefore his arrival would likely be a long-term prospect and not somebody who would feature in the first team straight away. The World Cup changed the mind of everyone. Some players will be fit to start the game, some will be fit to be on the bench.

Kurzawa has been at PSG since 2015 after coming through the rank at Monaco, and would certainly provide serious competition for Ben Davies.

Luke Griffiths too was left speechless after being sure all summer of the transfer going through.

- England striker Harry Kane, Denmark playmaker Christian Eriksen, South Korea forward Son Heung-min and England defender Kieran Trippier have all signed new contracts since May.

Premier League returns this weekend and Tottenham Hotspur kick-off the 2018/19 campaign with a trip to St James' Park to take on Newcastle United on Saturday. If we have all the squad thinking as individuals rather than as a collective game, you can not achieve what you want and can not succeed.

"I think I want to make clear that all are fit, but maybe we need to care for some players and not push them to compete, not take some rash decisions with some players due to their background or for different reasons that we are assessing now after Monday".
