Promising young defender Anton Walkes has signed a new deal through to 2019... apparently. There’s no photo of him with Pochettino’s arm around his shoulder anywhere online yet so I have a hard time believing this has actually gone through.

Premier League clubs have moved to block a bid by Spurs and the other ‘big six’ teams for a greater share of income from the next round of TV deals. As a committed egalitarian, I firmly believe that Bournemouth should have the extra cash to spend on as many Nathan Akes as they want.
