Reguilon & Ndombele fitness updates emerge ahead of Spurs vs Newcastle

Updates on the fitness of a number of Tottenham’s stars have been forthcoming online on Friday, ahead of the club’s meeting with Newcastle United.

One individual who will certainly not be lining out for the Lilywhites this weekend, though, is Sergio Reguilon.

Spanish stopper Reguilon of course sealed a high-profile move to north London earlier this month, after departing long-time club Real Madrid.

But, as confirmed by reliable injury analyst Ben Dinnery, an ankle issue has seen the 23-year-old ruled out versus Newcastle, with fellow summer arrival Gareth Bale also, as expected, set to miss out:
