Mauricio Pochettino's men have enjoyed another progressive season in north London, qualifying for the group stages of the Champions League with relative ease for the second season running, but Jenas, who plied his trade at White Hart Lane between 2005 and 2013, is not overly confident that the Lilywhites will be able to stave off interest in their stars.

He said: "No, there is no buyout clause in my contract, ' Pochettino said".

"All the players that we want to stay here next season will stay", Pochettino said when asked about the two England international's.

But the Argentine has made a shock admission about the club's transfers ahead of a potential busy summer of spending, claiming that Tottenham will not be able to compete with their rivals financially.

"I'm always going to be thinking about what's going to get the best out of me, and if that's going to be at Tottenham or if I have to leave it's just important I enjoy the journey and don't get too anxious about how it's going to end".

"For us to keep our best players, a lot of clubs are interested in them, but the players we want to keep will be here next season", the Spurs boss was quoted as saying by the BBC.

"If some club is paying double the salary, then how can you convince them?" he said. "I can not cheat you, that is the reality". "That is the reality".

Spurs may have waved goodbye to their stadium, but they are not about to lose their manager after Mauricio Pochettino confirmed he would still be in charge next season.

Tottenham secured the runners-up spot in the Premier League this season, trailing Chelsea by 10 points with two games to play.

He added: "You need younger players, like Dele Alli, who preferred to come here than another club".

"There is many, many rumours but I am committed to Tottenham and there is no reason to leave the club", he said. "On July 3, for pre-season, I will be here, don't worry". "I will stay here next season", Pochettino is quoted as saying by the Guardian.

"For us, it's so hard because I think 80 or 90 percent of our players have to work with their national teams and the last game is June 13".
