Alasdair Gold has revealed via Football.London that Oliver Skipp and Destiny Udogie might both cut short their holidays and report to Hotspur Way early after their involvement in the European Under-21 championship.
It is explained that the first-team players who were involved in international duty last month are expected to report for pre-season training on July 12 following a three-week holiday.
The squad is expected to fly to Australia on July 14 ahead of their first pre-season friendly against West Ham United in Perth on Julu 18.
Skipp and Udogie look to impress Postecoglou
Gold reveals that Udogie, who was part of Italy’s European Under-21 Championship campaign, is expected to cut short his holiday to get a chance to work with Ange Postecoglou before the tour party departs.
The journalist adds that Skipp might also do the same despite the England Under-21s making the final of the tournament.
Gold also states that Son Heung-min could fly directly to Australia from South Korea rather than facing the prospect of two long-haul flights around the world in the space of a couple of days.

With Italy having been eliminated in the group stages for the European Under-21 championship, one would expect Udogie to report early for pre-season.
Skipp would be forgiven for taking a little longer off, given how far England have gone in the tournament.
However, the 22-year-old is a model professional and he will be keen to cut short his holiday and make an impression on the new coaching staff.
