Tottenham have confirmed the transfers of Davinson Sánchez and Tanguy Ndombele to Galatasaray.

While the English transfer window shut on Friday night, other transfer windows around Europe remain open and the Turkish club Galatasaray have moved for two players Spurs viewed as dispensable.

Ndombele joins Galatasaray on loan for the remainder of the season, with the option to make the move permanent, while Sánchez, who has featured twice under Ange Postecoglou this season, has secured a permanent €15m transfer.

The departures of the duo will be a boost to Postecoglou, who has repeatedly made clear his desire to trim a bloated first-team squad.

Ndombele will get his wish of Champions League football by signing for the Turkish Super Lig side, with this his third consecutive loan spell away from Spurs since he joined in 2019.

The France international was originally given a chance to revive his Tottenham career upon Postecoglou’s arrival, but an ankle injury in pre-season was followed with poor timekeeping issues that saw the Australian coach give the green light for Ndombele’s departure. Sánchez will follow him to Galatasaray in a deal worth in the region of £12.8m, which brings his six-year association with the club to an end.

The Colombia centre-back Sánchez made 207 appearances for Tottenham following his arrival from Ajax but endured a mixed time, with his last outing for the club in a penalty shootout defeat by Fulham in the Carabao Cup where his spot-kick was saved.
