Video: Conte has five Spurs youngsters in first-team training right now, including giant 20-year-old forward

A host of young Tottenham players have been pictured in the club’s return to the training ground for pre-season.

Antonio Conte is embarking on his first pre-season at the club, having been parachuted in halfway through the last campaign.

The Italian’s summer regimes are famously gruelling and perhaps the Spurs squad are in for a shock, but it will prepare them for the season ahead.

Fitness is at the heart of what Conte demands from his players and now he has his chance to get them ready for his demands.

Youngsters in Tottenham pre-season training

Around 5:15 in a video that Spurs posted on their official YouTube channel, some of the young players Conte has called up can be seen.

They include Kion Etete, a towering 20-year-old forward who has apparently attracted interest from Portsmouth this summer.

As well as Etete, Jamie Donley, Kallum Cesay and Malachi Fagan-Walcott are the involved in the on-field training also.

Matthew Craig is also there, taking the tally up to five as Spurs get set for the season ahead.

Conte does tend to prefer his experienced players so it remains to be seen how many opportunities will be there for the youngsters after pre-season.

But right now they are getting great experience, learning from one of the best managers in the world and getting a taste of what they will need to do to get to the very top.

They will hope to get a chance to impress when the pre-season games start, and even if they do eventually go out on loan, they might just stick in Conte’s mind.
