Tottenham Hotspur smashed their transfer record last summer when they spent £55million to bring Tanguy Ndombele to North London from Lyon (Guardian).
The Frenchman was regarded as one of the brightest young talents in European football with Manchester United also having attempted to bring him to Old Trafford from under the noses of their Premier League rivals.
Ndombele made a decent start with a goal on his Premier League debut against Aston Villa along with providing in an assist in the 2-2 draw against Manchester City.
The 23-year-old has struggled with a number of injuries and a lack of form since moving to the Premier League.
Jose Mourinho’s arrival has seen the Portuguese show his frustration with Ndombele, notably during the 1-1 draw at Burnley where the midfielder showed little effort during the opening 45 minutes before being replaced at half time (Independent).
Football Insider claim that Daniel Levy has signalled his intention to keep Ndombele at the club despite his poor relationship with Mourinho.
Levy is expecting the head coach to use his man-management skills to bring the best out of the midfielder.
