Report: Tottenham midfielder weighing options amid unclear future
By Eddie Razo -

Tanguy Ndombele joined Tottenham Hotspur for a club-record fee of around £55 million two years ago and now his future with the London-based club remains up in the air. 

In Tottenham’s final friendly ahead of the 2021-22 Premier League season-opening match against Manchester City, Ndombele didn’t play, despite being fit. Furthermore, the midfielder trained leading up to the friendly against Arsenal. 

When asked about it postgame, manager Nuno Espirito Santo didn’t do much to put water on the situation. 

“Tanguy is not with us today. He is not injured, but we consider it is not yet the moment for him to be part of the game.”

The Athletic speculates that Ndombele is weighing his options, adding that the 24-year-old plans to remain patient and see what his situation is at the end of August. By deadline day, Tottenham would have played their first three Premier League matches of the season.

A potential departure could also prove difficult as Ndombele’s wages of £200,000 a week reduces the number of clubs that could afford that high salary that he commands.

Got the talent but only when HE can be arsed.
there’s a few players about like him , all attitude and arrogance. I’ve got time for them, fuck him off and stop wasting money on that sort of bellend.

Absolute talent is incredible, but I have never felt he wanted to be at Spurs, his attitude is terrible

Lets hope he buys into Nunos methods otherwise it`s another one on the scrapheap

His attitude and lack of physical prowess mean he will never succeed. He’s a loser and we paid winners money for him. Levy out.

If players do not have the hunger or desire to wear/play for the shirt, then they should be sold regardless who they are.

Can’t wait for 1st September when all the transfer circus is over and we can just focus on the squad.

He along with Gio and Sess were brought in as players to develop under Poch’s coaching, as others did under him. Once he left the situation became different and we needed finished products rather than talented but incomplete youngsters.

Sacking Poch was bonkers regardless of the results at that time. It was clear to everyone that a rebuild was needed, apart from the bald t*sser upstairs…

I genuinely believe we will have a couple more quality players added and will lose at least three players. (Sissoko Aurier & Sanchez) Nuno reminds me a bit like Poch in that under his polite positive exterior hides a ruthless indiviual and I have no doubt that the deadwood he want’s out, will not get much/any game time and will be shipped out in January.

As piss poor as last season was….whether due to tactics/fitness/coach the club was only 5 points off a top 4 finish. We need to eradicate the negativity in the dressing room which serves as a cancer and festers unless removed.

Why do we always end up buying the turkeys? Nodambelly, Soldadud and Pantssen. Perhaps because we seem to go for signings that nobody else wants for a reason. This guy is the modern Adebayor robbing us blind.

bit of a nitemare…we spend big on the odd occasion and get this..not sure who would buy him for the money Levy would want….also not sure Skipp is 100% ready for the PL from what I’ve seen but saying that he’s better than Winks already….

His performances in the second half of last season were criminal – by the end of the season he’d caught up and overtaken Dier in being responsible for the most dropped points I’m sure.

I’ve never seen a player with less awareness of the nature of any particular game he’s involved in – you’d be 4-0 down in the NLD and he’d be playing keepy uppy around the centre circle. Genuinely a baffling one, talented but…? :/

What a joke. This guy needs to take a serious look in the mirror.

All the talent in the world but very limited work ethic. Talent without hard work = wasted talent. Sadly it’s time for us to try to recoup as much of his transfer fee as possible (it will be nowhere near £55m) and move on.

He is weighing up his options?. He should devote more time to weighing himself.

If he runs the same way on a treadmill as he does on the pitch I’m amazed he got through the medical!
