Tanguy Ndombele’s loan at Galatasaray is not being terminated too soon, according to the print version of Sabah (as cited by Sport Witness). The midfielder made an impression during the team’s 3-0 victory over Konyaspor the previous weekend.
Since moving on loan to Galatasaray in the summer, Ndombele has found it difficult to play, and during the past few months, a number of Turkish media outlets have claimed that the midfield player will return to Spurs in the middle of the season.
This includes Milliyet, which revealed last month that Okan Buruk, the manager of the Turkish club, was dissatisfied with the 26-year-old’s application and performances and had requested the signing of a successor.
Galatasaray will host Tanguy Ndombele.
But Buruk chose to start the former Lyon player against Konyaspor last Sunday, and the Spurs player on loan played the full ninety minutes.
According to Sabah, Ndombele did well in the match and made “good use” of the opportunity that was presented to him. The midfield player’s future at Galatasaray is said to have been “put on hold” for the time being after his performance.
According to the publication, the France international has expressed his desire to remain in the Turkish capital to the management of the Istanbul club.
With Ndombele, we have witnessed far too many false dawns to be optimistic that this could be the beginning of a possible reversal. At the end of the season, one would anticipate Tottenham to permanently offload the Frenchman.
