Writing on Twitter, reliable Spurs correspondent Alasdair Gold has shared what Moussa Sissoko told him in a press conference about the transformation of club record signing Tanguy Ndombele.
Ndombele, who was linked with a move away from Tottenham in the summer, reportedly had a bust up with manager Jose Mourinho at Hotspur Way – with Get French Football News claiming the player was ready to leave.
Will Ndombele become Spurs' player of the season?
Yes, he is playing amazingly
No, Kane or Son definitely
The Frenchman, one of Spurs’ top earners after signing in a club record deal last summer, has been revitalised this season after a brief spell of tension through reports in the media.
Ndombele also failed to impress consistently over his debut campaign, but teammate Sissoko told Gold and the press that he has been reborn and is happy behind the scenes.
Evident through his performances, Mourinho recently waxed lyrical over the 23-year-old who is ‘playing amazing‘ – with Sissoko explaining that he is a changed man.
Sharing the ‘really good’ update, Gold has relayed Sissoko’s claim that Ndombele is ‘different’.
Here’s every word Moussa Sissoko said to us this afternoon, including really good stuff on Tanguy Ndombele, what he told him to help him get through his tough times, how he’s different in the dressing room now, what playing with Hojbjerg is like and more. https://t.co/zJjqJ6BuB1

Transfer Tavern take
A player with ‘incredible‘ potential, as explained by the Tottenham boss, this update could be good enough reason for Lilywhites to become excited.
Transformed in his new role further forward as a more of an attacking midfielder, Ndombele has showcased exactly why Spurs spent a club record fee to bring him to north London.
At one stage, it looked as if he was set for the exit door, but this upturn in form has only helped to justify his price tag – with his newfound happiness at Hotspur Way a huge bonus.
