Tottenham Hotspur are finally close to agreeing a deal to move on their flop record signing Tanguy Ndombele.

Paris Saint-Germain want to sign the 25-year-old midfielder and are now in advanced negotiations over a loan for the rest of the season with an option to buy at the end of the campaign.

Tottenham will demand that his wages are covered in full and want the option to become an obligation to buy and not least because a club of PSG’s resources have come in for him.

There is growing confidence that although a deal has not yet been agreed it will happen before Monday’s transfer deadline with

Spurs’ head coach Antonio Conte having made it clear he wants Ndombele to leave and that he does not feature in his plans as he works to re-shape the squad.

Spurs have been in talks with PSG for some time with their head coach Mauricio Pochettino a firm admirer of Ndombele who was signed for £55 million in July 2019 from Lyon while the Argentinian was still Tottenham manager. Pochettino believes Ndombele is a special talent.

Nevertheless Ndombele, despite his undoubted ability, has struggled since he joined Spurs and has failed to impress Pochettino’s successors with Jose Mourinho, Nuno Espirito Santo and now Conte all giving up on the French international.

PSG initially discussed a straight swap deal for Ndombele with Leandro Paredes offered in return. However that now seems unlikely with Spurs having shown little interest in the Argentinian international who wants to remain at PSG and fight for his place.

Moving on Ndombele, if a deal is finalised, will come as a relief to Spurs who are also attempting to offload Giovani Lo Celso and Dele Alli, with Newcastle United mulling over a bid, especially if they fail to sign Jesse Lingard from Manchester United, before the transfer window closes.
