Tottenham Hotspur manager Ange Postecoglou will hope to build on a relatively successful first term in charge of the Lilywhites when the new season starts.

The Australian saw his side start last season with a run of ten games unbeaten, but Spurs eventually finished fifth and missed out on qualification for the Champions League next term.

Postecoglou will likely want to bolster his squad during the upcoming summer transfer window, while some fringe players are also set to depart the club.

Now, it appears that the North London club have agreed to pay a significant fee to terminate one of their current player’s contracts.

As per Football Insider, Tottenham have agreed to pay in excess of £5 million to terminate the contract of record signing, Tanguy Ndombele.

Ndombele has had three loan spells over the past few seasons

The 27-year-old’s current contract is set to expire next summer, but the report claims that Spurs have agreed a fee to end the deal 12 months early and bring an end to the Frenchman’s torrid time at the club.

Ndombele joined Spurs from French side Lyon in 2019 for a fee of £63 million, and he featured regularly during his first two seasons in the capital.

He soon fell out of favour, though, and returned to Lyon on loan in January 2022.

The central midfielder has since spent time on loan at Italian side Napoli and Turkish giants Galatasaray, but it appears that he has no future in North London and looks certain to depart the club this summer.

In total, the Frenchman has played just 91 times for Spurs across all competitions, scoring ten goals and registering nine assists.

Ndombele hasn’t played for Tottenham since an FA Cup third round win over Morecambe in January 2022.
