Tanguy Ndombele has parted ways with Tottenham

Tanguy Ndombele, 27, has parted ways with Tottenham with one year left on his contract.

“Tottenham have mutually agreed to terminate the contract of Tanguy Ndombele effective June 30, at the end of his loan spell,” the club announced on its official website on Wednesday (June 13).

“Midfielder Ndombele, who joined from Olympique Lyonnais in July 2019, scored a goal on his debut for Aston Villa. In 91 appearances across all competitions, he has scored 10 goals. During his time at Tottenham, he has had loan spells at Lyon, Napoli and Galatasaray. We wish him all the best for the future,” he added.

Ndombele is a rumored ‘signing’. Tottenham signed him from Olympique Lyonnais in 2019, paying €62 million ($91.1 million), 바카라사이트 the most expensive fee in the club’s history. The deal was worth €70 million with options.

For better or worse, Ndombele turned out to be a liability at Spurs.

Spurs had high hopes for Ndombele. He had caught the eye of Pep Guardiola after a stellar performance against Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League. However, Ndombele struggled to adapt to the Premier League and was criticized for his complacent defending and up-and-down performances.

Most of all, he was criticized for his lack of discipline. In early 2022, Ndombele was sent off against Morecambe with his team trailing 0-1. Every minute was wasted, but he walked off slowly, angering the fans. Jose Mourinho publicly criticized him, saying that he “can’t give him any more chances” while coaching him.

Ndombele has bounced around on loan, but it hasn’t been fruitful. He spent the second half of the 2021-2022 season with his hometown club Lyon and the 2022-2023 season with Napoli, but both times he failed to secure a permanent move. He returned to Tottenham ahead of the 2023-2024 season.

However, he left the club once again after being excluded from Postecoglou’s system. He went on loan to Galatasaray.

Ndombele’s move to Galatasaray also had a release clause, but according to another English outlet, The Boot, that clause was never triggered. He returned to Tottenham at the end of last season.

Now that he”s back at Spurs, 안전놀이터 Ndombele has nowhere to go. He terminated his contract by mutual consent with one year left on it. According to Football Insider, Spurs agreed to pay Ndombele more than £5 million ($8.7 billion) in penalty fees.

Starting with Ndombele, Tottenham will be embarking on a major squad ‘shake-up’.
