Neville says Tottenham Hotspur will refuse to let key three figures leave

Sky Sports pundit and Manchester United legend Gary Neville has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has identified the three most important people at the club.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino, striker Harry Kane and midfielder Dele Alli will not be allowed to leave the North London outfit any time soon, according to the retired footballer.

Over the last few seasons, Tottenham have emerged as serious title contenders having finished third and then second in the last two campaigns.

Pochettino and his men pushed 2015-16 champions Leicester City and last season’s winners Chelsea to the wire, but ended up falling away in the final few matches.

In the current campaign, Spurs reside third in the standings, five points adrift of Manchester City and Manchester United, who reside first and second respectively.

Kane has been hitting the headlines of late for his impressive form, which has landed him with 11 goals in nine appearances in all competitions already.

Due to his talent, the striker is likely to be linked to other clubs, but Neville has claimed that Levy will do everything in his power to keep his stars.

The ex-United captain told Sky Sports:

“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.”
