Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed that Federico Fazio, Alex Pritchard and Nabil Bentaleb are not part of his plans for the upcoming campaign, at his press conference which was broadcast on the International Champions Cup's Facebook page.
Fazio, Pritchard and Bentaleb have all been omitted from Tottenham’s squad, which are currently in Australia on tour.
Clinton Njie has also been left at home, but Pochettino says that the winger is only not with the rest of the Lilywhites’ squad because of injury.
“Njie is injured - he is in London & not available to come. The situation of other 3 players is very clear. They are not in my plans,” Pochettino said.
Njie has been heavily linked with a move to Marseille recently, but Pochettino’s latest comments put some doubt over whether that move will happen.
Fazio, Pritchard and Bentaleb now look far more likely to be moved on this summer, with their futures at White Hart Lane in doubt.
It is no surprise that Fazio has been deemed surplus to requirements, but Pritchard and Bentaleb were both considered hot prospects at one time.
Pritchard and Bentaleb both looked to have bright futures at Tottenham, but they failed to push on last campaign.
