Journalist 'doesn't see a way back' for Tottenham midfielder

Tanguy Ndombele has struggled in his tenure at Spurs, and with a loan spell that's currently going very poorly, some believe he'll never have a shot under Postecoglou.

Speaking with GIVEMESPORT, journalist Dean Jones has stated that Tanguy Ndombele, currently on loan at Galatasaray, will not have a future at Ange Postecoglou's Tottenham.

The 27-year-old French midfielder has made 91 appearances in a Spurs shirt, but has struggled to hit his stride across a number of different managers, with Postecoglou the latest to reject his services.

Acquired by the North London club in the summer of 2019 for a whopping £53m, Ndombele is now valued by Transfermarkt at just under £13m.

Since Spurs' new manager arrived at the club this past summer, the former Lyon player has been out of the picture. He was sent out on loan to Galatasaray last September, and his struggles have only continued, if not worsened, in the Süper Lig.

Thus far, Ndombele has only managed to amass 437 minutes of play across 17 league matches, an average of roughly 26 minutes per game. Across the fixtures, he has just one assist to his name.

It's an unfortunate story of a player whose hype and expectations traveled far beyond his output, generating a mountain of criticism from supporters who felt that the club could have spent their funds differently.

The player's current loan spell includes an option to buy at the end of the 23/24 campaign for a reported £12.8m, however, with the way things are currently going, a move seems highly unlikely.

The French footballer's contract with his parent club is still set to run until the summer of 2025, meaning that Tottenham and Ange Postecoglou will likely have a decision to make at the end of this season in order to ensure that, if he's not a part of the club's future plans, Spurs can get something for him before he's able to leave for free.
