Tanguy Ndombele wants to stay at Tottenham and prove he is not a £55m waste of money, according to reports in France.
These reports in France are significant because they come from L’Equipe, who have previously suggested – presumably at the suggestion of Ndombele’s agents – that he is desperate to leave the club.
They now claim that Ndombele and Jose Mourinho have come to an understanding, facilitated by Daniel Levy, who was keen to see his club-record signing thrive.
The Frenchman reportedly told Mourinho three months ago that he wants to leave this summer after playing only a bit-part role in Project Restart.
The pair met again after their break, with L’Equipe claiming the meeting was ‘not particularly warm’ but verging on professional. It is now said that Ndombele ‘does not want to flop’ at the club and is willing to work under Mourinho.
He has appeared as a substitute in Tottenham’s first two games of the season and scored the winner in a pretty joyless victory over Lokomotiv Plovdiv in midweek.
Jose Mourinho hailed Tanguy Ndombele’s “evolution” after his winning goal against Lokomotiv Plovdiv.
These guys have got one more chance to prove their worth this season.
The Frenchman made just 12 Premier League starts in his season for Tottenham.
Tanguy Ndombele has also tested positive, and will join Pogba in isolating for 14 days.
Tottenham could go places under Jose Mourinho. Quite where is uncertain. But it should be without this lot.

It’s Chelsea v Liverpool and it’s the first proper big game of the season.
The key is to build from a position of strength. This lot joined Premier League champions, just like Thiago.

Liverpool are spending very conservatively this summer. How does their approach compare?
