Kane named in pre-season tour squad but Lloris left out

Tottenham striker Harry Kane has been named in the squad for the club’s pre-season tour of Australia and the Far East, but goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has been left out.

Chairman Daniel Levy met with Bayern Munich officials on Thursday over the possible sale of England captain Kane.

France’s Lloris has been omitted so he can “explore prospective transfer opportunities”, a Spurs statement read.

The Spurs captain, 36, has made 447 appearances since joining in 2012.

Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou refused to talk about 2018 World Cup-winner Lloris when he was asked about him during a news conference on Monday.

With one year left on his contract, Kane’s future has been subject to much speculation so far this summer.

Bayern are keen to sign Tottenham’s all-time leading goalscorer but have not been able to strike a deal for the 29-year-old.

Postecoglou said on Monday that he planned to give Kane “his vision for how to make the club successful”.

Tottenham fly to Perth on Friday for Tuesday’s all-Premier League encounter with West Ham.

After visiting Perth, Tottenham will fly to Thailand, where they will face Leicester on 23 July before heading to Singapore for a hastily arranged game against local side Lion City on 26 July after initial opponents Roma pulled out of the trip.
