Lyon boss Peter Bosz has admitted that he has been extremely pleased with the way Tanguy Ndombele has settled in at the Ligue 1 club.

Ndombele returned to Lyon on loan on transfer deadline day, with the Ligue 1 club having the option to make the deal permanent for £54m (Sky Sports).

The Frenchman struggled to get minutes under his belt after Conte’s appointment at Spurs in November, with reports indicating that the Italian had issues with the 25-year-old’s attitude and his work ethic (The Athletic).

The midfielder admitted that he lost ‘his taste for football’ during his two and a half years at Spurs and he hopes to rediscover his form at his old stomping ground (Telefoot).

Ndombele has impressed since returning to Groupama Stadium but he did not have the best of outings on Sunday as Lyon were beaten 1-0 at home by Lille.

GFFN gave the Tottenham man a rating of just 4 out of 10 for his performance, which was the lowest rating of any player.

However, Bosz admitted that he has been happy with what he has seen from the midfielder so far.

When asked about the January arrivals, Ndombele and Romain Faivre, the Lyon boss told Foot Mercato: “What I can say is that since the two are in the group, they adapted very quickly to our game. 

“For Tanguy, it was easier because he already knew Lyon. I’m very happy.”

Spurs Web Opinion 

We have already seen Tanguy dominate Ligue 1 before his move to Spurs and so it is not surprising to see the 25-year-old doing so well back in France.

The Tottenham hierarchy will be hoping that he maintains the same level of performance until the end of the season so that they can jack up his price in the summer.
