• France midfielder passes medical to become record signing
• Roma considering move for Toby Alderweireld
Tanguy Ndombele has signed a six-year contract at Tottenham after passing a medical. The club have shattered their transfer record to buy the midfielder from Lyon for €62m (£55.45m) plus €10m in add-ons – eclipsing the £42m paid to Ajax for Davinson Sánchez in 2017.
The 22-year-old was Mauricio Pochettino’s No 1 target and Spurs were able to see off late interest from Manchester United. Pochettino has convinced six-times capped France international that the next step of his career would be best served at Tottenham and Ndombele was impressed when shown around the training ground.
