Tottenham Hotspur’s Tanguy Ndombélé has struggled to impress at Galatasaray since he joined them on a loan deal in the last window.

On November 23rd, Habertürk reported the 26-year-old would be given a last chance to prove himself at the Istanbul club and it was also said they’ll monitor him against Alanyaspor.

The Tottenham owned player was on the ‘brink’ of leaving the Turkish club in January but his situation seems to have improved now.

That’s according to Sabah, who say Galatasaray manager Okan Buruk and their president, Erden Timur, had ‘private meetings’ with the midfielder during November’s international break.

Both made it clear to Ndombélé that he needs to ‘recover as soon as possible’. It claimed the Frenchman, after taking advice from the nutritionist, reduced 3.5 kgs, to reach the ‘ideal weight’ of 81 kgs.

In addition to this, the newspaper states the Tottenham man reportedly told both Buruk and Timur that: “I will not leave, I will show myself and stay in the team.”

At the weekend, the Frenchman made his second start in Galatasaray’ 4-0 victory over Alanyaspor. It was also the first time this season he played the full 90 minutes.

After Ndombélé reportedly said that ‘I don’t plan to leave’ Galatasaray in January, he will have to showcase himself in the upcoming fixtures.
