Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Tanguy Ndombele set to join Galatasaray on loan

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Tanguy Ndombele is set to join Turkish Super Lig outfit Galatasaray on loan until the end of the season, according to Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

Both clubs have reached an agreement over the Frenchman, with an option to buy him included in the deal.

Ndombele has already completed part of his medical tests and will travel to Istanbul later today to complete his move.

The 26-year-old is not in the plans of manager Ange Postecoglou having failed to impress the Australian with his attitude in training after returning to the club earlier in the summer.

Ndombele spent last season on loan in Serie A with Napoli, featuring in 40 games across all competitions and winning the Italian top-flight title with them, but they opted against activating their option to buy the player for €30 million.

He joined Spurs from Lyon in the summer of 2019 for an initial €62m but struggled to impress under managers Mauricio Pochettino, Jose Mourinho, (interim manager) Ryan Mason, Nuno Espirito Santo and Antonio Conte.

Ndombele spent the second half of 2021-22 back at his former club and it is safe to say he has made his last appearance for Tottenham.

The former Amiens star is not the only player who could leave Spurs before the summer transfer window in Turkey closes on September 8.

Romano has also confirmed that Colombian international centre-back
Davinson Sanchez could be moving to Galatasaray with Ndombele in a permanent deal.

Final details are still being sorted out between both parties, but the former Ajax star is expected to leave the North London club after his agent flew in to discuss exit terms last week.

Tottenham were also keen on getting rid of Eric Dier before the transfer deadline across the major European leagues closed last Friday, and they would not hesitate to sanction his exit if they can still receive offers.

Hugo Lloris could have his contract terminated after failing to secure his desired move last week, with the former France international turning down a move to join Newcastle United on Friday.
