Sources: Update on Tottenham offloading 'uncoachable' Aurier this summer

Tottenham are planning to offload Serge Aurier this summer even though he has been a first choice for much of this season, Football Insider understands.

The right-back, 27, enters the final 12 months of his contract in the summer and the club are keen to avoid him running it down and leaving on a potential free.

There was talk at the end of last year of a new contract for Aurier, but a Spurs source has told Football Insider that is now looking unlikely.

Jose Mourinho has started Aurier regularly during his 18 months at the helm but the coaching staff are said to regard him as “uncoachable”.

Now in his fourth season at Tottenham, Aurier has failed to eradicate the erratic tackling and positioning that has been a feature of his time at the club.

He came close to leaving Tottenham in a number of previous windows.

Chairman Daniel Levy had put in place a deal for him to join Spartak Moscow last summer after he was placed in the “bomb squad” ready for sale.

But the player rejected the potential transfer as a move to Russia did not appeal to him.

He has subsequently been successful in seeing off the challenge from £16m summer signing Matt Doherty for the regular right-back slot.

Aurier has started 14 Premier League matches and Doherty just nine after beginning the campaign in the team.

Doherty has been used more often in the Europa League, often against weaker opposition.

Aurier joined Spurs from PSG in 2017 and has made 102 appearances for the club.
