Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Tanguy Ndombele appears to be settling down at his new club following a fairly low-key start.
The Frenchman arrived at Spurs this summer for a club-record fee of £53.8 million, which will eventually rise to £62.8 million (BBC Sport).
It’s been a jittery past couple of months for the north Londoners, with positives results and performances hard to come by for Mauricio Pochettino’s men.
Players like Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen have all struggled for form, but Ndombele has given a good account of himself amid the team’s hardships.
His performance against Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League on Wednesday was excellent, and the midfielder says there’s plenty more to come from him.
He told the club’s official website: “I’m at a stage where I’m getting used to the play here and trying my best match after match to put into practice the work I’m doing on the training ground.
“Little by little, I’ll improve but one thing I can say is that Tottenham haven’t seen the best of me yet. Hopefully that will come in time.
“I feel better and better with every game I play and over the course of the season I hope that I’ll continue to progress and that the Club will see the absolute best of me as quickly as possible.”
Ndombele is improving week on week and it is becoming clear why the club forked out as much as they did for him.
The dynamo has a rare mix of power and technical ability, and he is eventually going to become an absolute force for Spurs.
Tottenham fans react
Lots of Spurs fans were excited to hear Ndombele knows he can get better and can’t wait to watch him develop:
Build the team around him. We’ve watched mercurial talents like Bale and Modric pass through. Now is the time to build.

Agree with that. He has an extraordinary range of gifts – vision, passing, speed, power, two feet, dribbling and tricks galore. Major asset.

This guy is unreal to watch. By far our best performer and my fave this season. Everything he does is so well executed and looks to drive forward. So well rounded. If he is saying theres more to come its actually frightening to think how good he will be eventually become. 😭
