Andros Townsend is a doubt for week one after suffering a shoulder injury.

Townsend suffered the injury in a behind-closed-doors game but that may not really effect his value much. He's out of favor at Tottenham and probably wasn't going to start in week one regardless of his injury status. The injury could hurt his chances at moving to another team, but we don't know how likely that was in the first place. His former boss, Tim Sherwood, is interested in bringing him to Aston Villa, but we wouldn't touch him in fantasy until a move seems more likely.

Tottenham fell to Peterborough United 3-2, as they fielded an XI full of youth players.

Kyle Walker was the only senior to make the XI and the results were somewhat poor, especially in defense. They would concede the first two goals of the match with the latter coming in the first few minutes of the second half. Spurs would respond with two goals of their own by Shayon Harrison and Ismail Azzaoui. The defense failed to tighten though, and Peterborough would find a game-winner late on. The fact that Walker was the only big name on the teamsheet may be because he needs more pitch time to prove he is over last season's injury woes or perhaps it is a sign that Kieran Trippier is already being viewed as the right back of choice for Mauricio Pochettino.

Sunderland have targeted Tottenham’s Younes Kaboul after the proposed deal for Zenit St Petersburg defender Nicola Lombaerts collapsed…

Sunderland are looking to add another defender – following the arrival of Sebastien Coates (permanently) and Adam Matthews – but have turned their attentions to Tottenham’s Younes Kaboul. It appeared that Nicolas Lombaerts would be arriving at the Stadium of Light, but Sunderland pulled out of the deal at the 11th hour for as yet unexplained reasons. It could simply be that center-back Kaboul has become available since Spurs signed Toby Alderweireld from Atletico Madrid early this month. Kaboul played just 15 times last season and did not featured at all after November. Sunderland are thought to have offered £3m with Spurs valuing him at £5m. Meanwhile, Argentine Santiago Vergini has joined Getafe on loan.

Spurs club web site is reporting that Hugo Lloris has fractured his wrist per a source at the club with his status for the start of the season uncertain.

Lloris was, with Christen Eriksen and Harry Kane, one of Spurs three standout performers last season. If he were missing for any period of time during the season it would be a huge blow to the White Hart Lane club. The announcement was extremely vague on details so it could be a minor summer inconvenience. Michel Vorm, at his best, is a strong back-up for Lloris but it has been a few seasons since Vorm was at his best so Spurs may not know exactly what they have in the Dutch back-up keeper.

Aston Villa are still chasing Tottenham winger Andros Townsend.

Townsend played under Tim Sherwood at Tottenham and the manager seems keen to bring him to Aston Villa despite a £15 million price tag. Townsend is also being pursued by Sunderland, Swansea, and Newcastle, so getting him might require a small bidding war. Townsend's fantasy value would be much higher at any of his suitors' clubs than it is at Tottenham as he's likely to get regular playing time at his new club. He will be an interesting fantasy player to follow this season.

Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen are getting the band back together at the center of the Spurs defense.

The former Ajax defensive partners look to recreate their Eredivisie success at White Hart Lane as the 2014-15 Southampton loanee has posted a picture of himself in his Spurs kit on his official Twitter feed. There were concerns earlier this week over a contractual snafu that could have kept the player at Southampton for a cut price fee but that has apparently been overcome unless the player picked up that kit at the club store.

Toby Alderweireld's summer has taken an odd turn as Atletico Madrid reportedly missed a deadline to pay Southampton a £1.5million fee to invalidate their right to make the Belgian's move to St. Mary's permanent for a cut-price fee.

If this story is true then someone at Atletico is in big trouble because Spurs and perhaps Chelsea appear to be willing to pay far more than the rumored £6.8million fee that Southampton's loan deal allows them to purchase the player for. The deal will also likely not sit well with the player as he apparently has his heart set on joining Belgium colleague Jan Vertonghen at Spurs this summer.

Newly signed Kevin Wimmer relishes his chance to develop with Tottenham, pointing out how full of young great talent the club has put together.

The Austrian center back is only 22 years of age and has the potential to develop into a first team regular at some point, signing a five-year contract with Spurs. With Jan Vertonghen on the last year of his deal and Federico Fazio being solid but less than spectacular, this season may be more of a introduction for Wimmer with the plan to develop him into a first teamer for the 2016/2017 season. He will surely be granted some opportunities this season but is not a fantasy option yet.

Lewis Holtby's loan deal with Hamburg has been made permanent after a successful 2014-15 season in the Bundesliga.

Holtby arrived at White Hart Lane with great promise for both Spurs and fantasy managers but it never really materialized. The short tenure of the manager that brought him to North London, Andre Villas-Boas, certainly didn't help. Nor did an only moderately successful loan spell at Fulham that saw the West London club relegated. Hamburg were no great shakes last season either but apparently he showed enough to inspire HSV to make his move permanent.

Guangzhou Evergrande have announced the signing of Paulinho from Spurs for £9.9m.

Spurs have been quiet so far this summer but perhaps this is the beginning of a series of moves to clear space for some new signings. Paulinho had some solid moments for Spurs but overall, wasn't good enough to help them contend for a Champions League spot. With Nabil Bentaleb and Ryan Mason coming up through the youth ranks to start regularly last season, Paulinho was an expensive and redundant spare part. His sale is probably the right outcome for all sides.

Tottenham are in pursuit of center back Toby Alderweireld and reports indicate that the Belgian is open to the move.

This could be a dynamite signing for Tottenham, as they are in need of an upgrade at center back and who better to fit the role than the former club teammate and current national teammate of Jan Vertonghen? Initially linked with Chelsea, the Blues have since taken their foot off of the gas and Spurs are set to swoop in. Alderweireld is currently on his honeymoon, but reports indicate that he will be putting ink to paper as soon as he returns. The signing would put a major road block in the career of Federico Fazio at White Hart Lane.

Alex Pritchard will return to Tottenham for further treatment after picking up an ankle injury while representing England at the Under-21 European Championships.

Pritchard limped off during the Group B victory over Sweden on Sunday following a heavy challenge and scans on Monday confirmed the Spurs midfielder had sustained ligament damage although the full extent of the problem is still not known. Pochettino had confirmed prior to the tournament that he wants Pritchard to be a part of his first team plans after the 22 year-old enjoyed a successful spell on-loan at Brentford last season. Pritchard is the second England player to be ruled because of injury joining Saido Berahino who returned to West Brom because of a knee ligament issue.

Roberto Soldado could be close to ending his unhappy spell at White Hart Lane as Galatasaray consider an approach for the Spanish forward.

Soldado cost Tottenham in excess of $40 million less than two years ago but following a disappointing period in London - which returned only 7 BPL goals - Mauricio Pochettino is ready to clear the decks and take a big hit on the striker. With the future of Emmanuel Adebayor uncertain and another expensive 2013 summer signing failing to live up-to his potential – Erik Lamela – the Lilywhites are a little lightweight upfront. Only Young Player of the Year Harry Kane was able to deliver consistently last season and any outgoing transfers are likely to see a move in the market with Anthony Martial (Monaco), Clinton N’Jie (Lyon) and Timo Werner (Stuttgart) reputed to be on the Spurs wish list.

Sunderland lead the way in the chase to snap up Tottenham and England winger Andros Townsend…

Sunderland are on the verge of making a move for Andros Townsend as they start the rebuild for next season. Manager Dick Advocaat has said they need six quality signings and 23-year-old Townsend would solve their left-sided problem – a position variously filled by Fabio Borini, Will Buckley, Conor Wickham and Jemain Defoe last season. And also provide an alternative to Adam Johnson whose legal case is ongoing. Despite starting just 22 matches for Spurs since joining the club as a trainee and spending loan spells at no less than nine clubs, Townsend has been a regular for England in the last couple of years. He is equally at home on either flank, has pace, a goal threat and will relish the chance to link up with former Tottenham team mate Defoe. Sunderland are likely to face competition though from Aston Villa, Swansea and local rivals Newcastle.

Tottenham have signed right back Kieran Trippier from Burnley to a five year contract.

Rumors ramped up earlier in the week that Spurs were in pursuit of Trippier and now a deal is complete, that see them pay Burnley an undisclosed buyout fee for the rights to the talented defender. Kyle Walker now has serious competition at the position and the hope is it will inspire him the way Danny Rose was last year with Ben Davies in the mix. Either way, Spurs are loaded with young talent at the fullback position these days.
