There is a growing sense that Tanguy Ndombele is starting to settle at Tottenham Hotspur, according to The Athletic.

The 23-year-old became Tottenham’s club record signing when he made the £55million move from Lyon in July of last year.

Ndombele experienced a tough first season in England having been hampered by injuries, fitness problems and a lack of form which saw Spurs head coach Jose Mourinho criticise his efforts to the media following his lethargic first-half display in the 1-1 draw at Burnley back in March (Independent).

Tuttomercatoweb claimed in July that the French international was unhappy in North London and did not want to play under Mourinho any longer amid reports that PSG were interested in taking him back to Ligue 1.

Ndombele was named in Tottenham’s starting eleven for last night’s 3-1 win at KF Shkendija and was the first time he had played a full ninety minutes in 2020.

The midfielder put in an impressive performance, showing not only his impressive passing ability but also a determination to win back possession and tracking back into his own penalty area to help with defensive responsibilities.

A source at Spurs who has access to the dressing room told The Athletic about Ndombele: “He’s feeling better than ever,”.

The report claims that the club expect Ndombele to be at full fitness in two to three weeks time while his relationship with Mourinho has improved with the pair beginning to understand each other in a better manner
