Tottenham confirmed the signing of Tanguy Ndombele on Tuesday afternoon and some fans took to social media to share their delight in the news. The former Olympique Lyonnais midfielder was a club-record signing and agreed a six-year deal with Spurs.
Ndombele is arguably an update on Mousa Dembele and could have a bright future at the club given his skill-set – combative player, adept at driving with the ball from deep and highly-creative. Tottenham paid £65m for his signature and supporters were thrilled to see the transfer record broken.
Quality signing for Spurs. Their midfield will be very strong next season.

After waiting more than 500 days for a new signing, Spurs landed two within four of each other on Tuesday. Jack Clarke was brought in from Leeds but will spend 2019/20 on loan at his former club, while Ndombele will go straight into the first-team.
Selling Mousa Dembele in January would have been forgiven if Tottenham had brought in a replacement, but the lengthy wait for another midfielder likely irked many given the injury woes in midfield at the turn of the year.
Nevertheless, signing Ndombele is a step in the right direction and fans should be happy seeing Tottenham going all out to sign a coveted target.
