Ndombele set to return to Spurs after Lyon loan spell expires

Spurs flop Tanguy Ndombele is facing an uncertain future with Lyon ‘set to REFUSE to stump up £54m’ to re-sign the Frenchman from Tottenham when his loan expires in the summer

  • Tanguy Ndombele is set to return to Tottenham when his Lyon loan spell expires 
  • Lyon have an option to buy for £54million but are unlikely to exercise it
  • Ndombele is not thought to be part of Antonio Conte’s plans at Spurs
  • He has impressed with his performances for Lyon since joining in January 

Tanguy Ndombele is reportedly set to return to Tottenham in the summer after his loan spell at Lyon as the French club are not willing to cough up £54million to sign him permanently.

Ndombele rejoined Lyon – who he left for Spurs in 2019 – on loan in the January transfer window and scored the equaliser in his team’s 1-1 draw with West Ham in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final on Thursday.

Lyon have the option to resign the Frenchman permanently after his loan expires at the end of the season for roughly the same fee as they got for him three years ago but the club are not expected to exercise it, according to the Evening Standard.

Ndombele’s future hangs in the balance as he is unlikely to be deemed part of Spurs head coach Antonio Conte’s plans when he returns to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The Premier League side will be hoping Ndombele, who signed for a club record fee of £53.8million, continues to impress for Lyon to attract potential suitors in the summer.

The 25-year-old arrived in England with a considerable reputation but has struggled to find the form which led to Spurs breaking their transfer record to land his signature.

Ndombele scored three goals in 19 appearances for Tottenham this season before being shipped back to Lyon on loan until the end of the current campaign.

His equaliser at the London Stadium last night was his first since rejoining Lyon but he has been praised for his performances in France in recent weeks.

Ndombele claimed earlier this year that he needed to leave Tottenham in January as he struggled to cope with the manager turnover at the club. 


During his time at Tottenham, Ndombele has worked under Mauricio Pochettino, Jose Mourinho, Ryan Mason, Nuno Espirito Santo and Antonio Conte.
