Pochettino tells Tottenham pair to find new clubs

Mauricio Pochettino has told Tottenham pair Moussa Dembele and Kyle Naughton to find new clubs in January, according to the Daily Mirror.

27-year-old Dembele has struggled for first team opportunities at White Hart Lane this season, and Pochettino is looking to free up some additional transfer funds by selling some players.

The Belgian international completed a £15million move from Fulham in the summer of 2012, but has failed to produce the sort of form he produced on a regular basis at Craven Cottage.

Pochettino has run out of patience with Dembele, and will listen to offers of around £7million for the midfielder when the transfer window opens on January 1.

Defender Kyle Naughton is another who will be shown the exit door at White Hart Lane, as Tottenham have American international DeAndre Yedlin arriving from Seattle Sounders in the new year.

Naughton is another who has struggled to hold down a regular first team place in the side under Pochettino, with summer arrival Erik Dier often preferred at right back.

Meanwhile, Swansea City are keen to sign Tottenham loanee Tom Carroll on a permanent deal when the winter transfer window opens, however Pochettino is likely to wait until the summer before making a decision on the 22-year-old’s future.
