Tanguy Ndombele’s latest light-hearted Instagram post has garnered a response from several of his former Tottenham teammates, including Kyle Walker-Peters.
It was widely reported during the summer that Ndombele had informed Nuno Espirito Santo of his desire to leave Tottenham.
Fabio Paratici is alleged to have tried hard to find a buyer for the 25-year-old during the summer, with the Italian thought to have offered him to the likes of Bayern Munich, Juventus and Lyon as a part of potential swap deals for Corentin Tolisso, Weston McKennie and Houssem Aouar respectively.
However, the midfielder failed to seal a move away from the club and sources have indicated that the former Lyon man is now ready to fight for his place in Tottenham’s starting eleven after holding productive talks with both Paraitici and Nuno.
Ndombele was named on the bench for the first time this season against Crystal Palace on Sunday but the midfielder was an unused substitute as Nuno’s men fell to a humiliating 3-0 loss at Selhurst Park.
However, going by his latest social media post, Ndombele certainly appears to be in good spirits.
The midfielder took to Instagram to post a picture of himself training at Hotspur Way, along with the caption: “Super Sayan” in reference to his new blonde hairdo.
The post incited funny responses from several former Spurs stars including Walker-Peters, Serge Aurier and George Kevin-Nkoudou, with the Southampton man commenting: “Hahaha too much swag!”
Spurs Web Opinion
While one cannot read too much into players’ social media posts, Ndombele’s body language in the recent training videos posted by the club does appear to be more positive. Hopefully, the 25-year-old buckles down and delivers the kind of performances we know he is capable of.
