The Tanguy Ndombele era at Tottenham Hotspur has come to an end. 

The Frenchman arrived to Spurs as the most expensive transfer in the Club's history. Now three years and five managers later, Ndombele is leaving on a low note. 

The France international showed flashes of his great potential but was never able to earn a spot on the starting XI. 

By struggling to find consistency and regular minutes under various managers, Ndombele has wanted to leave the club repeatedly in recent transfer windows. 

He has now found what he's been looking for, as he is expected to join Olympique Lyonnais on loan with an option to buy.

Football Insider Fabrizio Romano reported:

Controversial exit

The last time the 25 year-old played for Spurs, he was booed off by some supporters in the team's FA Cup third round win against Morecambe.

Earlier this month, manager Antonio Conte separated the Frenchman from the Tottenham first team. Since then, he has been away from his team-mates working alone at Hotspur Way

Ndombele was also left out of Antonio Conte's squad against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup semi-final second leg.

Time at Spurs and Ligue 1

Since arriving the summer of 2019, Ndombele has made 91 appearances for Tottenham, scoring ten goals and recording nine assists across all competitions.

Spurs acquired Ndombele from Lyon for a club record fee that could eventually top £60 million. 

Prior to joining the North London side, he played 130 games in the Ligue 1 with both Amiens SC and Lyon, where he recorded six goals and 23 assists.
