Some Tottenham fans are delighted to hear that Tanguy Ndombele is now back in full training ahead of the game against Norwich on Wednesday.
The French international took to Instagram on Sunday to hint that he will soon be available for selection and video footage from first team training on Monday confirmed that the 23-year-old was indeed back training with the squad along with Hugo Lloris.

Ndombele has had a difficult time with injury since making the big money move from Lyon in the summer.
Jose Mourinho has expressed his frustration at Ndombele’s repeated injuries and inability to remain fit for a consistent spell (Metro).
On hearing the news about Ndombele, some Spurs fans were extremely excited to have the midfielder back and hoped that we would finally get to see him produce his best in a Spurs shirt.
Other fans, however, felt that it was only a matter of time before the Frenchman was going to break down again.
Finally some good news. Now sign Jovic!

Our win % with Ndombele is 33% & without him is 29% A real game-changer. His return to full fitness is MASSIVE for us.
Lo Celso & Gedson compliment Tanguy perfectly. Both capable defensively but more importantly they’re great in transition.

It is important that we ease him back and give him the time he needs to recover fully. It is crucial that he stays fit for the next few months as it is clear that he is a sensational talent who has the ability to dictate play in midfield. We don’t have any other central midfielder like him in the squad.
