After going five games without a win, Ange Postecoglou‘s team has recently shown improvement, winning three straight Premier League games.

Although the Seagulls will surely be a tough challenge, the Australian will be expecting to see his team extend their recent winning streak.

It seems that Spurs have informed three of their most experienced players that they are free to leave the team in the meantime.

Hugo Lloris, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, and Eric Dier have all reportedly been advised to look for new teams, according to Football Insider.

Although the three have varied periods of service at Tottenham, after Postecoglou’s arrival over the summer, all three have drastically lost favour.

Dier, 29, moved from Sporting CP to the Lilywhites in 2014, and since then, he has played in over 360 games for the team in all competitions.

The central defender had been a regular for several seasons, but once Postecoglou arrived, he lost his starting position and didn’t play for Tottenham again until November, when Cristian Romero was sent off against Chelsea.

Since then, he has reportedly lost favour once more, and the story states that Spurs have instructed the England international to find a new team.

Lloris, on the other hand, joined the team in 2012 after moving from Lyon, a French team.

Although he was Spurs’ first-choice custodian for over ten years, he hasn’t been included in a matchday squad this year and is anticipated to leave North London next month.

The goalie has played 444 games for the team overall in all competitions, but his time at Spurs is practically over.

Hojbjerg, a midfielder, came to the team from Southampton in 2020. Despite contributing significantly to Tottenham’s midfield early on, the Dane has also lost favour this year.

Despite having played in more than 160 Spurs games in all competitions, he has only started three league games this season.
