The 2024/25 Premier League season is edging ever close. Following the confirmation of the new league fixtures just over a week ago, it won't be long at all until Ange Postecoglou's Tottenham team are back in pre-season training at Hotspur Way.

It is once again set to be a very busy summer for the club with the team heading to Japan and South Korea for their summer tour. Kicking things off in pre-season with friendlies against Hearts and QPR prior to heading out to Japan to play Vissel Kobe, Spurs will then come up against Team K League and Bayern Munich in South Korea before their final friendly comes against Bayern once again but this time at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Ahead of those six friendlies, Postecoglou's players will be putting in the hard work at the club's Enfield training base as they prepare for the new season. So when exactly will they be back for the first day of pre-season?

The first team players are expected to begin start filtering back to the training ground for pre-season work from Saturday, July 6 onwards. However, some of the squad may be back slightly later than some of their teammates as a handful of players not involved in Euro 2024 and the Copa America still had international commitments in early June.

It will be much later in Tottenham's pre-season campaign when players involved at the two international tournaments return to begin their training for the new season. Guglielmo Vicario, Micky van de Ven, Radu Dragusin and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg all remain at Euro 2024 as things stand, with Cristian Romero, Giovani Lo Celso and Rodrigo Bentancur on Copa America duty.

As only seven of Tottenham's first-team squad are away on international duty at present, Postecoglou will have the vast majority of his squad to work with in the first few days of pre-season training. Players such as Son Heung-min, James Maddison and Richarlison will be present early on in their summer training, with new signing Lucas Bergvall also set to link up with his Tottenham teammates for the first time following his move from Swedish side Djurgarden.

Postecoglou looks set to have 29 players - injury dependent of course - available to him for pre-season training, although that number could increase even further if some of the club's talented youngsters are given the opportunity to train with the first team.

Here are the players who will be at Hotspur Way in early July for pre-season training:
