TOTTENHAM star Tanguy Ndombele has landed in France ahead of his proposed loan move to Lyon.
Fans arrived at the airport in the French city to greet the midfielder who makes a return to Lyon following his departure in the summer of 2019.

Ndombele is now set to undergo a medical before finalising his loan switch to Lyon, which also includes an option to buy according to Fabrizio Romano.
Tottenham signed the 25-year-old from Lyon for a club-record fee of £65million.
But Antonio Conte has frozen him out since arriving in North London and was desperate to get rid of him this month.
The Frenchman was linked with a loan move to Paris Saint-Germain but Spurs were determined to have his wages paid in full.
Also, Valencia reportedly had a bid accepted by Spurs but Ndombele was keen to return to France.

And he has now signed for Lyon as a replacement for Bruno Guimaraes who completed a £43m switch to Newcastle on Sunday.
Tottenham are now set for a busy deadline day with more outgoings still possible.
Dele Alli could follow the Spaniard out of the exit door with Newcastle still interested.
Daniel Levy is also battling Arsenal to the signature of Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz, who could arrive as Ndombele’s replacement.
