"We look at the positives and it's a great place for us to build from". Could Dele leave for a super-club if he's really becoming a world class player?
"We finished third last season, second this year - we've got to try and take that next step and try and finish first".
"Of course there's going to be rumours over the summer, but I think I'd be very surprised if most of us ain't still here next season".
"We hear a lot about it being not very good for us".
Despite all their promise, Tottenham are yet to win a trophy under Pochettino and their last major prize was the League Cup in 2008.

The two-time Premier League winners contract expires at the end of June and Collymore stated that he has "loved watching him" play.
