The young left-back was signed during Antonio Conte’s reign but remained on loan at Udinese until this summer. Conte’s sacking and subsequent change of tactical approach under Postecoglou raised questions over Udogie’s role.
Udogie has grown into one of the most exciting attack-minded defenders during his time in Italy and the player’s agent has suggested Juventus, AC Milan and Inter would like to take his client on loan.
But Spurs have confirmed this week to Udogie that he will go on the club’s pre-season tour of Thailand, scheduled for the second half of July.
“Udogie’s situation is clear,” agent Stefano Antonelli told Sky Sport Italia. “He is a Tottenham player and we had contact over the last few days because they changed management and the coach will play 4-3-3 rather than 3-5-2.
“Postecoglu is absolutely convinced that Udogie will have space, but the Italian clubs are calling because some feel he needs another step before making the move, perhaps in a top club like Juve, Milan or Inter.

“I received a call from the Tottenham technical area today and asked us to confirm the plan, which is to go on tour in Thailand. They guarantee the importance of the player as of today, and we will evaluate everything, but he is a Tottenham player.”
