Insider reveals how Tottenham will get rid of Ndombele this month amid '£127m' claim
Tottenham will loan out Tanguy Ndombele this month before taking a “huge” loss when he leaves permanently.
That is according to Spurs insider John Wenham, who regularly breaks news about the club on his Lilywhite Rose social media channels.
Ndombele, 25, was handed a rare start against Morecambe in the FA Cup on Sunday (9 January).
He was subbed off in the second half and was booed by fans as he took his time getting off the pitch with his side 1-0 down.
After the game, The Athletic reported Spurs will try to offload the midfielder this month.
Wenham insists this is far easier said than done.

“We have had constant issues with him but this was the final straw,” Wenham told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.
“There is only one solution to get rid of him. We will end up paying more than 50% of his salary and he will go out on loan.
“Now, it’s pointless sending him to Ligue 1 because he has shown he can do it there.
“We have got to shift him to someone in the Premier League or maybe Germany or Spain, who has the financial capability to pay even a quarter of what we paid for him a few years ago.
“He can then move at the end of the loan. We are stuck in this situation because he’s on a massive contract.
“Getting rid of him has to be the priority now. Fans want signings but it’s impossible to do when you are paying this guy £10million every year.
“If he sees out his contract he will cost us £127million, it’s ridiculous.
“He is a very expensive burden and the only way I can see of getting rid of him, and this should be the plan, is a loan before we then make a huge loss.”
