Tottenham fans rejoice as Ndombele is dumped from squad for Chelsea clash after wantaway star was booed off vs Morecambe

TOTTENHAM fans rejoiced as Tanguy Ndombele was struck from their squad to face Chelsea tonight.

The wantaway midfielder was booed off the field after a lacklustre performance in Sunday’s FA Cup win over Morecambe.

And Antonio Conte heeded supporters’ jeers by leaving Ndombele out of Wednesday’s Carabao Cup match squad.

The playmaker was nowhere to be seen when Tottenham revealed their starting XI and bench.

Ndombele now faces an uncertain future in London, less than three years after a £55million switch from Lyon.

But Conte received the backing of supporters on Twitter, with many revelling in the manager's brutal decision.

One said: "Ndombele not in the line-up, we're about to boss that midfield again."

Another wrote: "Harvey White getting in squad ahead of Ndombele tells you all you need to know."

One tweeted: "Good to see his antics in coming off the last match aren't going unnoticed at the club."

Another added: "Safe to say Ndombele is gone."

It now remains to be seen where Ndombele ends up this month, with reports claiming he is keen on a transfer.

Barcelona and Roma have both been linked with moves.

But it's believed there are no clubs willing to launch bids for a permanent transfer.

That's because Ndombele is on a £200,000-a-week Tottenham deal running until 2025.

And it means a loan deal may be the only option for both player and club.
