Tottenham stars Dele Alli and Steven Bergwijn react to cryptic Tanguy Ndombele post
Tanguy Ndombele appeared to respond to speculation linking him with a move away from Tottenham with a cryptic post on Instagram and it clearly went down well with his team-mates. Ndombele arrived at Tottenham for a club-record fee last summer.
But the 23-year-old has struggled to adapt to life in the Premier League, playing a full 90 minutes on just three occasions.
Mauricio Pochettino struggled to get the best out of him before losing his job as Tottenham boss in November and Jose Mourinho has often left the midfielder out of his starting line-up.
When Mourinho has brought Ndombele in though, the Portuguese coach has been less than impressed and he has repeatedly called Ndombele out in the media.
Following the 1-1 draw with Burnley before the Premier League season was suspended, Mourinho launched a scathing attack on the Frenchman.

“I am not going to run away. I have to say Tanguy has had enough time to come to a different level. I know the Premier League is very difficult, I know that some players take a long time,” he said.
“But a player with his potential, his responsibility, he has to give us more. And especially when you see the way Lo Celso played, every minute I was expecting more in the first half.”
Since then, reports have emerged that Ndombele may be set to leave Tottenham after just one year at the club.
Barcelona have emerged as possible contenders for his signature, with a potential swap deal considered.

However, Ndombele appeared to respond to the speculation on Monday night with a cryptic post on social media.
He uploaded a short reel of highlights of his time at Tottenham along with a three-word caption which read, “Rien à signaler” – translated to “nothing to report”.
Tottenham fans flooded the post with many begging him not to leave the club.
And even some of Ndombele’s team-mates replied, with Dele Alli posting three star-eyed emojis.

Steven Bergwijn meanwhile left four fire emojis as his response while Giovani Lo Celso posted four hat emojis.
Barcelona are reportedly willing to offer both Nelson Semedo and Samuel Umtiti in a blockbuster swap deal in exchange for Ndombele.
With the coronavirus pandemic causing clubs to restructure their financial situation ahead of the summer transfer window, swap deals are more likely than big-money offers.
Mourinho is keen to bolster his defensive options in the summer though and both Umtiti and Semedo would certainly add some quality to his backline.
