‘Lost patience’ – Tottenham player was 6kg overweight in summer, still not near required level

Tanguy Ndombélé, who was signed by Galatasaray on a loan from Tottenham Hotspur on September 4th, has only played 123 minutes in seven games so far this season.

Journalist Nevzat Dindar of the Milliyet claimed earlier this month that the 26-year-old’s inability to lose weight had caused him difficulties in Istanbul.

The Tottenham player’s weight issue, according to Fotospor, “cannot be resolved to the desired level.”

According to the reports, the former Lyon player was 6 kg overweight when he arrived in Istanbul. The club’s physicians and dietitians responded right away. According to the site, his body fat percentage was at 20%, and the objective was to bring it down to 16.

But despite the 26-year-old’s weight loss of 2 kg and unchanged body fat percentage, “nothing has changed” significantly. The report states that he “continues to be a problem” with his weight, which may affect how long he stays in Turkey.

Galatasaray boss Okan Buruk has reportedly “lost patience” with the Tottenham player and is unhappy with his demeanor and lack of professionalism, according to another report from Fotospor.

The Turkish champions can choose to extend his stay, but according to the outlet, they will end his deal because he hasn’t “contributed anything” in the interim.

Dani de Wit of AZ Alkmaar has been identified by Galatasaray as a possible replacement for Ndombélé, most likely in January. Galatasaray thinks they can sign the former for €1 million, and his contract expires in 2024.

In that case, Tottenham might need to come up with a plan for the Frenchman come January.
