Ndombélé rumours quashed after Liverpool linked with Spurs midfielder

Spurs midfielder Tanguy Ndombélé will not be leaving the club anytime in the near future according to reports.

Rumours had surfaced earlier this week that Liverpool and Barcelona were both interested in attaining the 23-year-old midfielder’s signature.

Ndombélé endured a tough debut season with Spurs in the Premier League, adjusting to life under Jose Mourinho. The manager who signed Ndombélé – Mauricio Pochettino – was sacked in November, just months after Ndombélé’s arrival in London.

Pochettino spent a club-record £55 million on Ndombélé but the France international had a stop-start 2019/20 campaign due to injuries and poor form.

He was singled out for criticism by Mourinho after Spurs’ 1-1 draw at Burnley back in March.

Earlier this week, reports claimed that Liverpool were interested in making a shock move for Ndombélé in the next transfer window. However, today’s article in The Independent states that Spurs ‘have no intention of allowing’ Ndombélé to leave the club this summer.

The story goes on to claim that ‘the north London club will not be letting the France international leave whenever the transfer window reopens, either on loan or permanently.’
