Tottenham Hotspur’s top four hopes were dealt a huge blow on Saturday as they lost 4-0 against Newcastle United. 

An Alexander Isak double, as well as goals from Anthony Gordon and Fabian Schar, earned the Magpies an emphatic victory over Spurs, denting Ange Postecoglou’s side’s hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.

Aston Villa’s shock 2-0 win over Arsenal on Sunday afternoon moved the Villans three points clear of the Lilywhites in the race for a top four spot, although Tottenham do still have a game-in-hand over Villa.

In the meantime, it appears that Spurs are likely to sell one of their midfielders this summer.

As per Football Insider, the North London club plan to sell Tanguy Ndombele when the transfer window reopens.

The Frenchman is currently on a season-long loan at Turkish side Galatasaray, but the report suggests that the Super Lig outfit are unlikely to sign the midfielder permanently when his deal ends.

Ndombele looks likely to leave Spurs permanently this summer

Instead, Tottenham will listen to offers from other clubs for the 27-year-old, who became Spurs’ record signing when he joined from French side Lyon back in 2019, for a fee of £63 million.

In total the central midfielder has made 91 appearances for Tottenham across all competitions, but he has failed to ever recreate his best form in the capital.

Having previously spent time on loan at both Lyon and Napoli, Ndombele was loaned to Galatasaray last summer and has played 25 times for the Turkish club so far, but is yet to score.

Ndombele’s current contract is set to expire at the end of next season, but the report suggests that he will likely leave this summer and is unlikely to ever play for Tottenham again.
