Much has been written about the players Tottenham Hotspur are likely to sign this summer, but now we know a little more about the ones who could be heading out of the club.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has been speaking to reporters at his press conference ahead of the club’s pre-season clash with Juventus, with his comments published on the International Champions Cup Facebook page, and he made it clear three players would not be featuring for the first-team in the upcoming campaign.

Speaking about Nabil Bentaleb, Federico Fazio and Alex Pritchard, the Spurs boss said, “The situation of the three players is very clear. They are not in my plans.”

It is no real surprise that Bentaleb and Fazio could be moved on. However Tottenham fans may be disappointed that Pritchard never really had the chance to prove his worth in the first-team due in no small part to injury.

In other news, the Daily Star claims Southampton will renew their interest in Kieran Trippier this summer, a year after they lost out on him to Tottenham.

The 25-year-old has only been at Spurs for 12 months but he hardly featured in the league last season and a fee of £5million is being touted for the former Burnley man.

And finally, the Sheffield Star claims Rotherham United are in talks with Tottenham regarding the possibility of bringing Grant Ward back to the club.

The midfielder spent last season on loan at the Championship side, impressing in the process, and now it is being claimed he could return possibly in another temporary deal.
