Tottenham coach pleased with fitness levels of Kevin Wimmer and Cameron Carter-Vickers

Four Tottenham Hotspur players, including two waiting for their debuts, took part in their first training of the summer on Monday.

Tottenham Hotspur’s assistant head coach Jesus Perez has been speaking to the club’s official website about how pre-season training has been going, referring specifically to the recent arrival of four players at very different points in their Spurs career.

New signing Kevin Wimmer got his first taste of training in North London following his £4.3million signing from German side Cologne, while youngster Cameron Carter-Vickers is back and no doubt hoping for his breakthrough.

Then there is Nabil Bentaleb – who recently signed a new long-term contract at the club – and Andros Townsend – who must up his game considerably following some inconsistent performances last season.

The four players returned after their summer breaks and Perez explained what the Tottenham staff did to get them ready for first-team training.

After the quartet returned to the club on Monday, Perez told, “We used the day to test them and then train in the afternoon.

“At the moment they are still on their individual programmes but we expect them to join in with the main group tomorrow because they are at good fitness levels.”

That is good news for Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino: that the four players have returned following their summer breaks in good condition.

Wimmer in particular will need to impress from the outset having only just arrived, and the Austrian will know his first-team chances just got a lot tougher following the signing of fellow centre-back Toby Alderweireld from Atletico Madrid.
