Anderlecht coach Kompany loses Lokonga to Arsenal - then replacement Ngonge to Juventus

Anderlecht coach Vincent Kompany has suffered a double transfer blow this week.

Having sold Albert Sambi Lokonga to Arsenal at the beginning of the week, Kompany is now losing his potential successor - Joseph Nonge.

Anderlecht raised €20m - plus bonuses - from the sale of Lokonga and had earmarked Ngonge, 16, as his replacement.

However, Juventus have swooped to sign Ngonge for a knockdown €200,000.

Ngonge was training with Kompany's senior squad at the beginning of preseason, but is now in Turin, having agreed a three-year contract with Juve.
