The £31.5m-rated Frenchman is currently out on loan at Lyon, but the Ligue 1 outfit aren’t expected to re-sign him permanently.
What’s the latest news involving Ndombele?
According to the Evening Standard, Ndombele, who scored his first goal back at Lyon against West Ham last Thursday, is set to return to Spurs this summer before resolving his future, with Les Gones unlikely to pay the option to buy which was included in his January loan deal.
Ndombele returned to Lyon in the winter window following his lack of chances under Antonio Conte and has played 10 games in all competitions for the French outfit.
However, neither party are confident that Lyon will exercise the option to sign him permanently, which could therefore see him back at Hotspur Way for the start of pre-season.
Ndombele’s last Tottenham outing came against Morecambe back in January when he was booed off, an incident which appeared to mark his last game for the club.
Therefore, Moore reckons that providing the 25-year-old still isn’t part of Conte’s plans, he expects the talented midfielder to be moved on this summer.
What did Palmer say about Ndombele?
He told GIVEMESPORT: “The manager is the manager, and if he says he doesn’t see him having a future at Spurs, then that tells you everything you need to know, he’s going to be moved on in the summer.”

Has Ndombele’s form improved at Lyon?
Since his January departure, Ndombele’s form has got better and almost all of his metrics highlight that.
According to WhoScored, his overall rating has increased from 6.46 to 6.86, while he has chipped in with two assists, which isn’t a great surprise considering his key passes per 90 minutes are up from 0.4 to 1.1.
He’s also making more dribbles, while he’s contributing more than double the amount of successful passes. At Spurs, he was completing just 29.3 every game, compared to more than 60 in a Lyon shirt.
Tottenham will be hoping that Ndombele’s form will attract interest from other European clubs this summer, providing Lyon don’t end up signing him permanently
