The 22-year-old is one of the brightest prospects in Europe and has impressed in the centre of the park in Ligue 1.

Ndombele features as a conventional central midfielder but can also play deeper in front of the defence as an enforcer.

Mauricio Pochettino didn't make a major signing last term but guided his team to a top-four Premier League finish and a European Cup final appearance, with Spurs losing 2-0 to Liverpool in Madrid.

Spurs also signed Jack Clarke from Leeds United on Tuesday, but he is set to go back to the EFL Championship side on loan for the 2019-20 season. 

Tottenham's official website announced the 18-year-old has signed a deal until 2023.
