Ligue 1 boss Peter Bosz has branded Tanguy Ndombele a ‘quality player’ as Tottenham Hotspur’s Premier League misfit seals a return to Lyon, as reported Soccer London.

As the clock strikes 11 p.m. Monday night, not one, not two, not three but four of the most naturally gifted playmakers you could wish to see could pack up their bags and bid farewell to life in North London.

Some for a few months, others forever.

Bryan Gil has landed in Spain for a medical in Valencia, just six months after joining Sevilla.

Giovani Lo Celso joins Villarreal, with minor injuries reducing the Argentine to a shrunken shadow of himself.

New Everton manager Frank Lampard will seek to do what Antonio Conte, Jose Mourinho and Nuno Espirito Santo could not, and halt Dele Alli’s mysterious and infuriating decline.

Alli is in talks to join The Toffees on a permanent deal, per Sky sports.

Does Tanguy Ndombele still have a future at Tottenham?

Ndombele, however, may be the most disappointing of starts.

It’s less than three years since the Frenchman became Spurs’ record £55million signing. At his best, Ndombele is a truly extraordinary footballer; capable of producing moments of breathtaking technical quality.

It is, however, impossible to get rid of the feeling that he has retreated since crossing the English Channel in 2019.

It is therefore rather normal that Ndombele returns to the club where he established himself as one of the most promising midfielders in Europe.

“We are building a team that can win things,” said Lyon coach Peter Bosz.

Lyon confirmed Monday afternoon the arrival of Brest star Romain Faivre. Ndombele is following in his footsteps, joining a loan deal that can be paid off permanently for the same £55m fee Tottenham paid almost three years ago.

Given Lyon’s financial situation, after a season without European football, it’s safe to say the £55m clause won’t be triggered anytime soon.

“If we look at Romain Faivre and Tanguy Ndombele, we can say that they are quality players,” adds Bosz.

Lyon will raise part of Ndombele’s salary, after bolstering their finances with the £33m sale of Bruno Guimaraes to Newcastle United (Fabrizio Romano).
