Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville has claimed that Daniel Levy will ensure key Tottenham trio Mauricio Pochettino, Harry Kane and Dele Alli go nowhere over the next 18 months.

Manager Pochettino and star players Kane and Alli have been integral to the team’s transformation in recent seasons.

Tottenham challenged strongly for the title in 2015-16 and 2016-17 only to lose out to Leicester and Chelsea, but Neville is confident that the foundations are solid for teh team to continue to be a force.

The former Manchester United defender told theĀ Sky Sports website: “There are three characters who aren’t going anywhere in the next 18 months for Tottenham. Dele Alli, Pochettino and Kane aren’t going anywhere. Daniel Levy wouldn’t let them go anywhere.

“With the stadium being built and them starting there next season, with the season tickets, the hospitality, the incredible stadium, one of the best in the country, they’re not going anywhere in the next 18 months, Daniel Levy wouldn’t let them go anywhere.

“Whether he re-negotiates contracts is another matter but they’ve got a great chance in the next 18 months because that squad will stay together. They need to build around what they’re doing. They can’t sell Kane and Alli and let Pochettino go, it would be a deflated new stadium if they did. There’s so much invested in it.”

Tottenham are currently at their temporary home of Wembley, as they wait for the new White Hart Lane to be complete for 2018-19.

OPINION

Spurs are building for the future, on and off the pitch. The values of Pochettino, Kane and Alli have all rocketed in the past two seasons and their reputations have been enhanced further still by an impressive start to the new campaign. Tottenham have had Wembley teething problems, but have been brilliant on the road and go into the international break third in the Premier League and having made a strong start to their Champions League. Again, led by their three main men, they look well placed to challenge for the title.
