Final week: Lilywhites now waiting on final Levy sign-off as another Spurs man nears exit


As per French sources, who spoke to Get French Football News, there has been a big exit update out of Tottenham Hotspur with an agreement in principle now reached for the transfer of Tanguy Ndombele, as relays the FTT.

Spurs transfer chief Fabio Paratici is looking to offload certain members of Antonio Conte’s squad in what could be a major final week overhaul in north London, with some players very close to leaving.

It is believed that winger Jack Clarke is on the verge of a transfer to Sunderland on loan and he is not the only player who may well depart N17 before deadline day.

The likes of Dele All, Matt Doherty and Ndombele have repeatedly been linked with a move away before January 31 as the Lilywhites enter crunch talks with Paris-Saint Germain over the latter star.

Tottenham’s club record signing has been training alone at Hotspur Way amid all the speculation surrounding his future with GFFN now sharing what could be a crucial development.

As per their information, the Lilywhites have reached an agreement in principle to offload the 25-year-old to PSG on loan with the option to make his stay permanent.

It is believed that Maurico Pochettino’s side will cover all of his wages and Ndombele has personally ‘green lit’ a switch to Ligue 1.

However, one obstacle remains in Spurs chairman Daniel Levy as they wait on his ‘final sign-off’ – with the Lilywhites chief apparently ‘still trying’ for an outright permanent deal.

As Tottenham approach the eleventh hour of this window, we believe Levy should settle for temporarily ridding Ndombele’s £200,000-per-week salary off the club’s books and then try for an indefinite exit in the summer.

Depending on the player’s performances under Pochettino, PSG could well opt to trigger the option to secure Tottenham’s club record signing on a permanent basis anyway.

As they attempt multiple new incomings before this window closes, the time to haggle is decreasing and sealing an Ndombele exit for squad room is simply a must.
