(Reuters) - 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 here 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 July 21 in the International Champions Cup before travelling to Shanghai to play Premier League rivals Manchester United on July 25.
