Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho says he expects Dele Alli to still be at the club at the end of the transfer window.
Alli has been linked with a loan move to Paris St Germain, now managed by former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, after falling out of favour with Jose Mourinho this season.
Mourinho said: ‘I expect. I am saying that since the beginning of the transfer window, I was not expecting anyone to leave, I was not expecting anyone to come.

Alli has not appeared for Tottenham since the FA Cup third-round win at Marine on January 10
‘At January 27, not long until the end, I don’t believe anything is going to happen, but it is open. Football is football.
‘The transfer window is open, sometimes unexpected things happen, but I don’t expect it.’
PSG are still confident of landing Alli on loan before the end of the January transfer window, according to The Mirror.
Alli, 24, has fallen down the pecking order at Spurs under Mourinho this season and has not started in the Premier League since the opening-day defeat by Everton back in September.

He has also failed to make a first-team appearance since the FA Cup third-round victory at non-league Marine on January 10.
With former boss Pochettino now in the hotseat at the French champions, a loan move would seemingly work for all parties and the Argentine manager is determined to reunite with the England international.
The report details that any loan deal would not come with an option to buy but the player himself is desperate for a move in order to play in the second half of the season and increase his chances of featuring at Euro 2020 this summer.
