Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has ruled out the possibility of the Spurs entering the transfer market in January.

The Argentine manager, who arrived from Southampton in the summer, has finally managed to get the team playing in his high pressing style that has reaped rewards, as his team destroyed Chelsea at White Hart Lane on New Year's Day.

Spurs had a tough start to the season, but have emerged from their slump and are currently in fifth place in the Premier League and also in the semi-finals of the Capital One Cup.

Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen, Federico Fazio and Jan Vertonghen have been the spine that has helped the north London club emerge as top contenders for a place in the top-four and this has prompted the manager to abandon his plans with regards to bringing in reinforcements to his team in January.

Pochettino is confident that the club have a strong enough squad to compete until the end of the season and he also believes that the academy has enough talent to cover for any injuries to first-team players.

"We have a strong squad and I am happy with the squad," Pochettino said, as quoted by the Mirror.

"We have young talent in the academy if we need them, like we did in the Europa League," the former Saints boss explained.

The White Hart Lane outfit have been linked to various players in recent months, with reports suggesting that the manager was keen to add to his striker force as senior strikers Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor have found it hard to find the back of the net on a regular basis.

Harry Kane has been shouldering the entire goal scoring burden, with some help from in-form Danish midfielder Eriksen, who received hefty praise from his manager after scoring yet another late winner as Spurs beat Sunderland 2-1 on Saturday.
