Tottenham confirm double transfer as two exits sanctioned


Tottenham have confirmed the departures of both Davinson Sanchez and Tanguy Ndombele. Galatasaray have completed the double signing of both Spurs stars as Ange Postecoglou continues to trim down his squad after the summer transfer window slammed shut last Friday.

Ndombele spent last season on loan at Napoli but failed to break into Luciano Spalletti's title-winning side on a consistent basis, starting just eight league matches and playing less than 1,000 minutes. This move could bring to an end his underwhelming Spurs career after signing as the club's record buy in 2019.

Postecoglou has gave the green light for both Ndombele and Sanchez to join the Turkish outfit after making the decision not to include them in his plans for the 2023/24 campaign. Galatasaray have also added former Chelsea star Hakim Ziyech to their squad this summer.

Spurs confirmed the departure of Sanchez with a club statement, which read: "We have reached agreement with Turkish Süper Lig side Galatasaray for the transfer of Davinson Sanchez. The Colombia international defender joined us from Ajax in August, 2017, making his debut as a substitute in a 1-1 home draw with Burnley in the Premier League later that month, his full debut following in a 3-0 victory at Everton that September.

"Davinson continued to feature regularly in all competitions in the seasons that followed, memorably scoring twice in an FA Cup tie at Everton in February, 2021, and towards the end of last term, reached the 200-appearance milestone for the Club, also captaining the team in a 3-0 FA Cup fourth round win at Preston North End in January.

"Davinson leaves us with 207 appearances and five goals in our colours to his name. We thank him for his service and wish him all the best for the future."

Shortly after, Spurs confirmed the departure of Ndombele with a statement. "Tanguy Ndombele has joined Turkish Süper Lig side Galatasaray on loan for the remainder of the 2023/24 season," it read.

"The midfielder joined us from Olympique Lyonnais in July, 2019, and has scored 10 goals in 91 appearances for us to date. He spent the 2022/23 campaign on loan at Napoli, making 40 appearances in all competitions for the Serie A champions, scoring twice."
