Tanguy Ndombele set for Galatasary loan and could face ex-Tottenham teammate Harry Kane in the Champions League

Tottenham midfielder Tanguy Ndombele is joining Galatasaray on loan, talkSPORT understands.

During the summer, the 26-year-old was linked with an exit from Spurs as boss Ange Postecoglou admitted his squad was ‘too big’.

He enjoyed a successful loan spell last season at Napoli as they won their first Serie A title since 1990.

Ndombele, who has not featured at all for Spurs this season, now looks set for another season away from north London.

Galatasaray are set to sign him, with the Turkish transfer still open until next Friday, in a deal that has an option to buy.

It’s a move that could see Ndombele make a return to the Champions League, this time at the Super Lig champions.

With Galatasary drawn in Group A for the group stages, he looks set to be reunited with his former Spurs teammate Harry Kane.

Last month, the striker completed a move to Bayern Munich from north London in a deal worth more than £100million.

Kane scored 280 goals for Spurs across 435 appearances, and it hasn’t taken him long to show such impressive form at Bayern.

The 30-year-old has already netted three times in his opening four games for the club, who hope he can lead them to European glory.

Also in Group A are Manchester United, a side that Ndombele has won just once against in four meetings during his career.

FC Copenhagen will also come up against the midfielder’s new side, with the two clubs meeting on September 20 in Turkey.

Ndombele’s debut for Galatasary, who have also signed Hakim Ziyech and Wilfried Zaha from Chelsea and Crystal Palace respectively, could come on the weekend prior.

They are due to face Samsunspor in the Super Lig, with the Turkish champions third in the table after three games.
