‘We thought we would not get’: Club director stunned by who he’s managed to sign from Tottenham

This month, two periphery players from Tottenham Hotspur made two high-profile departures from the team.

Tanguy Ndombele, a midfielder, and Davinson Sanchez, a defender, have both joined Galatasaray, according to a statement from Tottenham.

According to BBC Sport, Ndombele has signed with the team on a season-long loan from Spurs with a £12.8 million buyout option.

In the meanwhile, Sanchez signed a four-year, permanent deal worth £8.1 million with Gala after leaving Tottenham.

Ndombele and Sanchez were both highly-paid acquisitions. In 2019, the former joined for an alleged £55 million, while the latter did so for an alleged £42 million.

Both players were acquired by Tottenham for club-record sums, but neither has made a Premier League starting lineup this year under new manager Ange Postecoglou.

Erden Timur, vice-president of Gala, has expressed his happiness at getting both players.

He added that they used the players’ circumstances to their advantage in order to get such late moves through.

As reported by Asist Analiz, Timur stated that Ndombele had four days ago “much more significant opportunities.”

But we took advantage when the transfer window closed, he added.

“We anticipated not receiving Davinson either. The final day, we settled on €9.5 million plus bonuses.

Ndombele was welcomed with much excitement by Tottenham. No one can dispute his potential, but at Spurs, he just hasn’t made an impression.

It’s unfortunate, but it’s not like he hasn’t had chances given that he’s already had two loan moves and the chance to win over various managers.

While Sanchez put in a valiant effort, he ultimately lacked the consistency to establish himself as a regular starter for Tottenham.

We can only hope that Ndombele does well enough for the club to decide to permanently sign him from Tottenham if both shine at Gala.
