Tottenham Hotspur finally appear to be close to ending their year and a half transfer drought this week, with two deals nearing completion.

If reports are to be believed, it will be a straight race between Jack Clarke and Tanguy Ndombele to become Tottenham’s first signing of the summer.

Clarke is said to be completing his medical today ahead of a £10m plus add-ons move to North London (Guardian). The 18-year-old impressed during his breakthrough season in the Championship last year.

The Sun also report that an announcement on Ndombele is expected ‘shortly’ after the Frenchman travelled to the Hotspur Way training ground to have a tour of the facilities.

The report indicates that Mauricio Pochettino conducted the tour himself, as he looks to win his first trophy at Spurs next season.

The deal for Ndombele with Lyon is said to be worth around £65m, which would be a new Tottenham club record signing (Sky Sports).

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. It will be great to have another strong “Bele” in the middle of the field! Saw the highlights clip, the guy’s got some skills!

  2. Super happy to have signed NDombele. Have watched a few videos of Jack Clarke and can’t help but wonder if hes maybe being signed as a wing back, he doesn’t look like replacing Eriksen and doesn’t look like displacing Son, Lamela, Lucas or Alli in wider positions. Could Poch be fancying to mould him into a right back/wing back role? He does look to have wing back sort of style to him.
