Cape Town - Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has assured fans that they will spend money on bringing in new signings before the end of the transfer window.

Spurs remain the only Premier League side yet to add a new player to their squad, despite selling Kyle Walker, Nabil Bentaleb, Clinton N'Jie and Federico Fazio.

However, Pochettino has revealed that they are looking at bringing in up to four players to bolster their squad.

"For sure we're going to spend," he told talkSPORT. "We're going to strengthen our squad and sign some players who can help us fight. We need new energy in the team.

"We have a very confident team who are ready to challenge again for a big season, but it's true we have the responsibility to try to provide some new energy every season.

"I'm sure that will happen and we'll add some players before the end of the transfer window. We are working hard to deliver that and ensure that by the end we add a few players, maybe three or four. We'll see. We are so close to making it happen.

"The transfer market is a little bit more relaxed now. The other big sides have spent almost all their money and now it's our moment. It's Tottenham's time to get involved.

"The type of player we want to add is very specific and it has been difficult to make it happen early on in the transfer window, but we are so calm."

Spurs get their season underway against newly-promoted Newcastle United at St James' Park on Sunday with dropped points adding to fans' calls to spend on new signings.

Kick off is at 14:30.
