Tottenham tipped to sanction Ndombele loan-to-buy deal after exit talks update - pundit

Tanguy Ndombele will leave Tottenham on loan with a view to a permanent move.

That is the view of former White Hart Lane number one Paul Robinson, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the 25-year-old’s future after a dismal display in the FA Cup.

“I don’t think he’s going to be in a Spurs shirt much longer.

“It’s a difficult one because of his wages though. They will not recoup the transfer fee they paid for him, no chance. They will have to take a loss on him but I’m sure Antonio Conte was thinking about that when he came in.

“Tottenham will not be able to recoup the £65million they paid for him but I don’t think they’ll make a huge loss on him.

“They need to get him off the books though because he’ll be on big wages. I think a loan with a view to a permanent move at the end of the season is the likeliest.”
