Nabil Bentaleb looks to be on his way out of Tottenham after manager Mauricio Pochettino confirmed the Algeria international is not in his plans for the forthcoming season.
The 21-year-old was not taken on the club’s pre-season tour of Australia, where Spurs will play Juventus and Atletico Madrid in the International Champions Cup. Also missing from that trip is winger Alex Pritchard, who is expected to leave the club this summer, and defender Federico Fazio, who spent last season on loan at Sevilla.
Speaking at a press conference in Australia, Pochettino said: “Njie is injured – he is in London and not available to come. The situation of the other three players is very clear. They are not in my plans.”
