He said: "Having had time to consider my actions, I acknowledge now that the timing and manner of what I said was ill-judged".

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino insists that the club will bring in new players before the end of the transfer window.

Gabriel Jesus would finish the season as the Premier League's fourth top scorer with 37 goals, ahead of team-mate Sergio Aguero in seventh place on 28 goals.

"If you look at the history of Tottenham in the last few years, we always spend at the end of the window".

"I don't think it's a matter to joke about because some of the worldwide players today, maybe one or two years ago, none of us knew them very well".

'He signed last year a five-year contract.

As the Premier League season kicks off, numerous league's top forwards will have their sights set on a good start in the race for the Golden Boot.

He has most certainly proved that he's not a one-season wonder, and should Kane remain at Spurs for years to come, one would imagine he could be the one to challenge Alan Shearer's goal-scoring record.

Tottenham have been excellent for the last two seasons and have been extremely unlucky not to have a trophy to show for their efforts.

"We need one in each line".

Ross Barkley, who has been told he is free to leave Everton this summer, is reportedly on the club's radar however, with Pochettino urging fans to be patient and see what happens during the final 20 days of the window. Earlier today, Danny Rose released an official apology through his representatives, which has been accepted by the Spurs hierarchy and everyone seems ready to put this episode behind them.

Spurs get their season underway against newly-promoted Newcastle United at St James' Park on Sunday with dropped points adding to fans' calls to spend on new signings. Till then, they will play all their designated home matches at Wembley Stadium this season.

Former Arsenal star Merson has given his take on Rose's comments, stating that although he has no qualms and that the defender is right to want more money, the situation could have been handled differently by the player.

'For me it's not a big issue, it is time to move on.

Tottenham have a couple of tricky fixtures to start the season.

Tim Sherwood has urged Tottenham to splash all their transfer budget on re-signing Gareth Bale, claiming he would win them the Premier League this season.

Victor Wanayama is also set to miss the trip due to a knee injury sustained whilst away on Spurs' pre-season tour of the US.
