Tottenham Hotspur boss Antonio Conte has told four players to train away from the first team as he looks to sell players who are surplus to requirements.

Tanguy Ndombele, Giovani Lo Celso, Sergio Reguilon and Harry Winks have all been told they can train on their own and haven't been involved since Spurs returned from their pre-season tour of South Korea.

The Evening Standard have reported that the quartet were told that they could no longer be a part of the first-team sessions as Conte could only work with a certain number of players.

Conte and co are keen to find them all a new club before the end of the transfer window (September 1). The most high-profile of those is Ndombele, who joined Spurs for a club-record fee of £65m in 2019.

However a series of below-par performances saw him lose his place in the side and the Frenchman spent last season on loan at his former club Lyon. The arrival of Yves Bissouma has also seen him fall further behind in the pecking order.

Lo Celso has also returned from a loan spell to find himself no longer in contention at the North London club after spending last season on loan at Villarreal.

Reguilon and Winks meanwhile did feature - albeit sporadically towards the end of the season - with other players preferred to them in their position.

Spurs have been busy this summer and made six signings, bringing in: Ivan Perišić, Richarlison, Fraser Forster, Djed Spence, Bissouma and Clément Lenglet.

Tottenham face London rivals Chelsea in their next Premier League game after an emphatic start which saw them beat Southampton 4-1.
