Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to social media to share their reaction to the latest update in the Tanguy Ndombele saga.
The Evening Standard reported that the French international now wants to fight for his place in the team and hoped to play his first minutes under Nuno against Crystal Palace or in the Europa Conference League Thursday.
Ndombele was included on the bench in the 3-0 defeat to Palace but did at least make his first matchday squad of the season.
This comes after a drama-filled transfer window, as the 24-year-old reportedly requested to leave the club. However, Spurs slapped a £51.5m price tag on their club-record signing (The Telegraph).
Clearly, no club was willing to meet that value before the deadline and the midfielder has subsequently remained in North London.
The saga has divided the Spurs fan base and some have taken to social media to give their view on the latest update regarding the 24-year-old.

I think not having Serge and Sissoko around will be the making of him

How many times I'vd read this? Ndombele is a mercenary. Very big talent, bad behavior.

Spurs Web Opinion:
This midfield three system is built for Tanguy and, as shown by the defeat to Palace, Tottenham are in desperate need of his creativity. It makes sense for all involved for him to knuckle down and fight his way back into the team. I only hope he finds the motivation.
