Tottenham sell winger to Sunderland and place non-touring quartet in store window


Giovani Lo Celso, Tanguy Ndombele, Sergio Reguilon and Harry Winks have all been omitted from the club’s South Korean pre-season tour.

The four men will continue their preparations at Hotspur Way, with their future in north London looking more uncertain than ever.

Lo Celso has made 84 appearances for Tottenham since joining the club in 2019. However, after failing to establish a regular place in the starting line-up last season, the Argentine was sent on loan to Villarreal.

Ndombele followed an almost identical path. Arrived at the club in 2019, the player made 91 appearances before being loaned to Lyon.

Reguilon, on the other hand, has made 67 appearances in all competitions since joining the club in the summer of 2020.

Winks, who has spent his entire career at Spurs, has played more than 30 games in each of the last four seasons. However, the 26-year-old doesn’t seem to feature in Conte’s plans for the future.

One man who has already confirmed his departure is Jack Clarke. Tottenham signed the player from Leeds United in 2019 for a fee of £10m.

Nonetheless, Clarke hasn’t made any Premier League appearances and has now confirmed his move to Sunderland.

The Black Cats have reportedly paid £10m for the player, who went on a successful loan spell in the North East last season.

A statement read: “We have reached an agreement with Sunderland for the permanent transfer of Jack Clarke.

“The 21-year-old enjoyed a successful loan spell with the Black Cats last season, making 20 appearances as the Wearside club secured promotion to the Championship through the League One play-offs.

“Having joined us from Leeds United in July 2019, Jack made his Spurs debut in October 2020, coming off the bench in our 3-0 Europa League group stage win over LASK. He went on to make four appearances in total for the club. We wish Jack all the best for the future.”
