Some big names miss out
The release adds that Eric Dier and Ben Davies will continue their rehab at Hotspur Way after undergoing medical procedures during pre-season.
Cameron Carter-Vickers is another player who misses out due to rehab, while Vincent Janssen and Georges-Kevin Nkoudou are trying to seal exits from the club.

Victor Wanyama, Serge Aurier and Davinson Sanchez will return after their breaks. All three players were involved with their national sides in summer tournaments.
The trip will be a huge opportunity for the youngsters to make a mark under Mauricio Pochettino.
