Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele expecting Spurs return

Olympique Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele is expecting to return to parent club Tottenham in the summer.

Ndombele scored on his return to London on Thursday night as loan club Lyon held West Ham to a 1-1 draw in the Europa League quarter-final first leg.

Lyon have the option to re-sign him permanently for £54million in the summer - roughly the same fee Spurs paid them in summer 2019.

However, neither Spurs nor Ndombele expect Lyon to exercise the option given the prohibitive sum involved, leaving the 25-year-old's future uncertain.

Head coach Antonio Conte sees no future for Ndombele at Spurs, where he will still have three years on his contract in the summer, but the hope is that his performances back at Lyon will prompt interest from other clubs, says the London Evening Standard.
