Tottenham have no intention of allowing record-signing Tanguy Ndombele to leave the club this summer.
Ndombele has been linked with a move away from Spurs after a difficult first season in the Premier League, with reports suggesting Barcelona and Liverpool will try and sign him.
However, it is understood the north London club will not be letting the France international leave whenever the transfer window reopens, either on loan or permanently.

Ndombele has struggled at Tottenham Hotspur since his record £54million move last summer
The 23-year-old joined Spurs last summer for a club-record fee of £55million plus add-ons from Lyon, but has struggled to make an impact in his debut campaign in England.
Mourinho’s commitment to his club’s record signing was clear, when – with the country in the first few weeks of a lockdown – the Portuguese was spotted holding a one-on-one training session with the midfielder in a public park.
Mourinho was pictured putting Ndombele, Ryan Sessegnon and Davinson Sanchez through a public training session on Hadley Common in Barnet earlier this month.
According to L’Equipe, the Spurs boss had earlier knocked on Ndombele’s front door and asked the midfielder to join him for a run.
Although, the impromptu training session led to speculation around Ndombele’s future at the club.
Despite reports linking him with a summer move to Barcelona, Ndombele appears ready to try and make the most of his time in north London and prove his critics wrong.
The Spanish giants are said to be willing to sign Ndombele even though he has found it difficult to cope with the physicality of the Premier League, suffering repeated injury problems, and only producing the goods in fleeting moments.

Barcelona boss Quique Setien is looking to sign Ndombele despite a rocky season at Spurs
Speculation about his future has been rife ever since boss Jose Mourinho singled him out for criticism after the 1-1 draw at Burnley – the club’s last Premier League game before suspension.
Rumours have continued to circulate, with Barcelona, Liverpool and Lyon among his reported suitors, but after French media suggested Ndombele was considering his future at the club, he appeared to nail his colours to his mast by posting an Instagram video of this season’s highlights, with the caption ‘nothing to report’.
