Mauricio Pochettino insists he is not leaving Tottenham this summer despite reports linking him with Inter Milan

Mauricio Pochettino says he will still be at Tottenham next season and has insisted there is no buy-out clause in his contract.

Sky in Italy reported earlier this week that Inter Milan wanted to appoint Pochettino as their new manager and that the Serie A club could buy the Argentine out of his contract by paying Spurs £4.2m.

However, Pochettino has dismissed the claim of a buy-out clause in his current deal and says he remains fully committed to Tottenham.

When asked if there was a buy-out clause in his contract, Pochettino said: "No, there is no buy-out clause in my contract. I will stay here next season.

"There are many, many rumours, but I am committed to Tottenham and I have no reason to leave the club. I will stay here, don't worry.

"Pre-season starts on July 3, you will see me here, don't worry."

Tottenham have already secured a second-placed finish in the Premier League and sealed Champions League football for another year.

Inter are on the lookout for a new manager having sacked coach Stefano Pioli last week following five defeats in six games.

They have since approached the representatives of Chelsea manager Antonio Conte and Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone, according to Sky in Italy, but both have made it clear they want to stay at their respective clubs.
