Mitchell was lured to White Hart Lane from Pochettino’s former side Southampton in 2014 and arrived with a reputation as one of the game’s sharpest spotters of talent.

The 34-year-old will remain in his post until a departure date is agreed but his exit comes as a blow to Spurs – and especially to Pochettino who has worked with Mitchell for years.

“I feel very disappointed with his decision. It’s his personal choice,” Pochettino said.

“You know that we have a relationship from Southampton. I’m very disappointed but when someone takes a decision and it’s personal, what can I do?

“He’s still working with us and we still need to finish the three weeks working together and do the best business for the club.”
