Tottenham forward, Harry Kane, has said that the club has been hit by the uncertainty surrounding the future of a number of their players.
Tottenham currently sits at the 7th position with 8 points after 6 games, dropping 10 points from a possible 18.
Harry Kane, who spoke in an exclusive interview with 'Soccer Saturday', said:
"Obviously in the transfer window just gone, there were players who maybe wanted to leave, and it was public knowledge that there were players close to leaving who stayed.
"So it's never easy when you have a situation like that, but now that's closed, we all just want to move in the right direction.
"Whoever is on the pitch has to give everything for the club, that's all we can ask for. You have to kind of put your individual needs to one side and make sure you're performing to the highest level, because that will help your individual status anyway."
Some of the first-team regulars, including Danny Rose, Toby Alderweireld and Christian Eriksen, were seemingly set to leave the North London club at different points during the summer, but for reasons best known to the President of Tottenham, Daniel Levy, the aforementioned players remain part of Mauricio Pochettino's squad going into the 2019-20 club football season.
Spurs top defender, Jan Vertonghen, had also been absent from the squad during the beginning of the season, as his Tottenham contract expires at the end of the season. The defender, however, later described the reason for his absence as "tactical".
