While Transfer Deadline Day happened across the country, it didn't happen in N17 with surprisingly no comings or goings despite the rumours that had been doing the rounds.  Although the English transfer window has closed, the European window is open until the end of the month, so it is possible that some players may leave for the continent by that time. So, as clubs across the country were scurrying to complete deals at the last minute, Daniel Levy had a day off.
Former Spurs Development striker Lee Angol completed a move from Mansfield Town to Shrewsbury Town.
Ahead of Saturday's opening Premier League fixture at Newcastle United, Mauricio Pochettino announced that Victor Wanyama is making good progress after a knee injury and Erik Lamela's muscle injury is improving.  Juan Foyth won't be fit for a couple of wweeks after picking up a thigh injury in America and Cameron Carter-Vickers is still making a recovery from a groin tear, but Josh Onomah and Harry Winks are both soon to join the first team squad for training.  The Spurs manager also said some of the Spurs players involved in the World Cup could feature on Saturday at St James' Park.

With the transfer deadline less than 24 hours away Danny Rose is apparently talking to Schalke 04 of Germany and has options with a number of Premier League clubs concerning a season long loan, while West Ham United London have been considering a late move for Fernando Llorente.  Aston Villa have changed their mind and have said that they will not sell Jack Grealish, which has frustrated the midfielder, who may see out the last year of his contract before leaving for free next summer.  A rumour is circulating that Tottenham have made an approach for Paris Saint Germain left back Layvin Kurzawa, having failed to attract Ryan Sessignon to White Hart Lane from Fulham earlier in the summer, with Danny Rose offered as part of the deal to bring the 18 year old across London.  Manchester United have been dangling wrinkly and soft carrots in the shape of Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo to get Tottenham to part with Toby Alderweireld.

Spurs only seem willing to offer GBP25 million for Jack Grealish and to be honest that seems about right, but the club also refused to sign free transfer midfielder Bernard from Shakhtar Donetsk, as he wanted GBP200,000 a week in wages.  Manchester United no only want to buy Toby Alderweireld, but also Kieran Trippier.  It's one way of bankrupting them I suppose !!  Trippier is also being linked with Paris Saint Germain, Real Madrid and Juventus.  Having managed Jay Rodriguez at Southampton, Mauricio Pochettino is keen to be re-united with him at Tottenham.  Having see him in action tonight for WBA against Nottingham Forest, I am not sure he will help us win a trophy.  Real Madrid are keen on signing Christian Eriksen, while AS Roma might be poised to make a bid for Victor Wanyama, but Tottenham may be making a move for French Under-21 international midfielder Tanguy Ndombele of Olympic Lyonnais.  Shamrock Rovers' 16 year old keeper Gavin Bazunu is the subject of a bid from Spurs, with several other English clubs interested, but Tottenham have made the first solid bid for the young stopper.

AS Roma are interested in buying Victor Wanyama; Everton are interested in signing Danny Rose still, Jack Grealish played for Aston Villa tonight in their 3-1 win at Hull City and speculation around his move to Tottenham has been tempered by the Midlands club's statements that they are keen to keep the England Under-21 midfielder and Celta Vigo midfielder Stanislav Lobotka is a GBP31 million target for Tottenham, as well as the Spanish club's 21 year old Uruguayan striker Maxi Gomez for another GBP35 million too.  Toby Alderweireld's GBP60 million move to Old Trafford now looks inevitable, with an agreement between the two clubs finalised, but Tottenham do not want to let him leave until a replacement has been secured, with Matthijs de Ligt of Ajax being touted as the man to come in.
Mauricio Pochettino has told the media that up to nine players will be unavailable for Saturday's match at Newcastle United because nof their late return to trianing after the summer's World Cup and injuries.

Tottenham lost their final pre-season friendly 1-4 away to Girona in Spain tonight.  Lucas Moura gave Spurs a 13th minute lead before a young side succumbed to the home team.
Defender Toby Alderweireld appears to be set to join Manchester United for a fee of about GBP60 million according to the media today and it will happen in the  next 48 hours apparently.  Spurs may be on the verge of making their first summer signing, if the papers are to be believed, with the Croatian midfielder Marcelo Brozovic the target with the club paying Internazionale GBP44.4 million for his signature.  Spurs are still way off Aston Villa's valuation of Jack Grealish, but then Mousa Dembele has turned down a move to Internaztionale, so perhaps we won't need the Championship midfielder after all ?

With no action on the transfer front so far, the days are running out to complete signings and to prevent players leaving.  Today the news is that Spurs are still in talks to buy Geoffrey Kondogbia of Valencia for around GBP70 million.  Doesn't sound like a levy buy - even a "must get something last minute" purchase.  But then it doesn't look like we will be getting Jack Grealish one way or another, as either Chelsea will steal him out of our grasp (much like they did Ross Barkley  ... "Who he ?", I hear you ask !) or Aston Villa will be fixing their asking price for the midfielder at about GBP70 million (or so they inflatedly think his worth has risen by getting relegated).

Tottenham are reported to have ended their interest in Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha, although some sources reckon the we could step in after Chelsea had a bid rejected for the Ivory Coast international.  Apart from the Sun reporting Spurs might be set to let Lucas Moura go (with Real Betis interested) because GK Nkoudou is playing well in pre-season, the rest of the news is not even fake, but non-news about who certain media sources think we should sign.
