England full-backs Kieran Trippier and Danny Rose have been left out of Tottenham Hotspur’s pre-season squad for their tour of Asia.
Spanish and British media reported Trippier, 28, is on the verge of a move to Atletico Madrid in a deal worth 20 million pounds ($24.81 million).
Spurs confirmed that Rose has been granted time off "to explore prospective opportunities with other clubs", along with striker Vincent Janssen and winger Georges-Kevin Nkoudou.
Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs will face Serie A champions Juventus in Singapore on 21 July in the International Champions Cup before travelling to Shanghai to play Premier League rivals Manchester United on 25 July.
