Football.London’s Alasdair Gold has revealed that Tanguy Ndombele has been training alone at Hotspur Way this week.

Ndombele was jeered by the Tottenham fans last week after the midfielder ambled slowly off the pitch when he was substituted in the second half of the FA Cup tie against Morecambe.

Since then, reports have emerged that Spurs are looking to move the 25-year-old on this month either on loan or permanently.

Antonio Conte seemingly provided a major hint over the former Lyon man’s future this week by dropping him from the matchday squad for the second leg of Tottenham’s Carabao Cup semi-final against Chelsea.

Gold has now revealed that Ndombele has been put through his paces away from the rest of his teammates this week.

He stated that the Frenchman has not been involved in tactical work with the rest of the squad and is instead working with a member of the sports science staff.

The journalist added that while the club officially describes Ndombele’s separate training as ‘specialised conditioning treatment’, the decision has been made collectively by Conte and the club.

This certainly indicates that Conte does not see Ndombele as part of his plans and that the club are looking to push him through the exit door this month.

If it were fitness or conditioning related, the midfielder would probably have been put on his own individual programme soon after Conte arrived at the club.
