According to ESPN, Tottenham Hotspur quartet Federico Fazio, Nabil Bentaleb, Alex Pritchard and Clinton N’Jie have been told they can leave the club.

Spurs are looking to make some key changes to the squad personnel this summer, with few additions being supplimented by the departures of one two who are seemingly out of favour.

Well, boss Maurico Pochettino has deemed up to four are surplus to requirements in the latest reports, with last summer’s signing N’Jie arguably the most surprising of the lot.

In other news defender Kevin Wimmer has been singing the praises of new signings Victor Wanyama and Vincent Janssen, telling the club’s official website of how well they have settled in.

“They’ve settled in very well,” said Wimmer. “I knew about them before. Victor has shown in the Premier League already that he’s a very good player, a very strong midfielder and Vincent also – we played against him with the Austrian national team in June and in that game I saw him for the first time.”

“He did very well then, he scored and I’m very happy that we have these two great players now. I think they will help us a lot.”

Both players will push for a first-team spot this season, with Janssen hoping to form a partnership with the club’s number one striker Harry Kane.

Wimmer has also been talking about the club’s gruelling pre-season training schedule, with boss Mauricio Pochettno notoriously for putting his players through their paces with double training sessions.

“It’s been a very tough week, we’ve trained a lot – your body, your muscles and everything hurts! Sometimes it’s not that much fun in pre-season but you know you have to train and work hard so you are very fit during the season,” he added, talking to the club’s official website.

Finally, Boussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuschel has ruled out the sale of versatile player Matthias Ginter, with Eurosport accrediting Spurs and two more top-flight clubs with an interest in the midfielder.

Tuschel told Sky Sports: “With Ginter, I think everything is said. German clubs wanted to sign him and now English clubs want to sign him.”

"I don't know if everything is true or it is just rumours but we made our point clear - Matthias is our player and stays our player."
