'It’s demoralising': Journalist stunned by what he's seen at Tottenham's training ground

Four linked-away Tottenham Hotspur players are currently training alone at Hotspur Way, according to Sky Sports reporter Michael Bridge.

Spurs quartet Sergio Reguilon, Harry Winks, Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso appear surplus to Antonio Conte’s requirements.

Tottenham have enjoyed a fruitful transfer window, signing six players with a seventh – Destiny Udogie – set to join next week.

Spurs have also moved four players on – Steven Bergwijn, Cameron Carter-Vickers, Jack Clarke and Joe Rodon.

Reguilon, Winks, Ndombele and Lo Celso have apparently also been earmarked for a departure from Spurs.

Bridge, writing on GiveMeSport, said the spectacle of the quartet training on the other side of the pitch was a “hard watch”.

“I was at the training ground last Thursday,” he began.

“The first-team were training, and you see them four on the edge of the pitch on the other side watching, and then they go and run with one of the fitness coaches.

“I don’t care how much money they’re on, it’s demoralising, I was demoralised for them. It was quite a hard watch, especially Winks, who’s been there from day one.”

Reguilon, Winks, Ndombele and Lo Celso didn’t feature in pre-season, and were left out of the tour of South Korea.

Spain international Reguilon was heavily involved last season before losing his place to Ryan Sessegnon.

Meanwhile, Winks spent most of the campaign on the bench.

Ndombele and Lo Celso both spent the second half of last season out on loan, at Lyon and Villarreal respectively.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Lo Celso is ‘getting closer’ to securing a return to Villarreal on a permanent basis.

The transfer insider also claimed that Napoli are now eyeing Ndombele, though with his £200,000-a-week wages, it could be on loan.
