The Lowdown: Ndombele out the door?
Daily Star reporter Paul Brown first reported that Ndombele’s future is up in the air with the player now considering his options this summer.
Following this development, Football Insider went one step further and claimed that the Frenchman has now told club chiefs that he wants to leave Spurs before August 31.
Indeed, it appears another Lilywhites star is now seeking the exit door amid all the unrest surrounding Harry Kane.
Reacting to this FI claim on Ndombele, Campbell has now made his feelings known to the same outlet.
The Latest: Campbell makes claim
Speaking to Football Insider in reaction to this update that Ndombele is now looking to leave north London, Campbell believes that the exit could ‘100%’ happen and the ‘writing is on the wall’.
“It could happen, 100%,” the pundit explained.
“Ndombele had problems with Mourinho, didn’t he? Maybe he isn’t the player Nuno wants.
“The fact of the matter is when he’s not even involved, the writing is on the wall.
“He wants to play football, he’s a talented boy and the record signing. He’s not going to hang around and sit in the stands watching everyone else.
“He’ll ask to leave if he doesn’t play. A move will probably do him good. It’s never good when you aren’t even making the squad.”
The Verdict: Blow for Nuno?
On his day, the 24-year-old can really turn it on and his ability is there for all to see.
According to WhoScored, no Spurs player completed more successful dribbles per 90 last season than Ndombele (2.2) and he can often prove difficult to dispossess.
That being said, question marks remain surrounding his application and it may be best for both parties to entertain considerable offers before deadline day.
