Tottenham have confirmed defender Jonathan Woodgate will not be offered a new contract.

Reports had suggested that the club were willing to offer the 31-year-old a pay-as-you-play deal but that failed to materialise leaving Woodgate free to find a new club this summer.

He made just 49 Premier League starts during his three-and-a-half year stint at the club with his crowning acheivement coming against Chelsea in the 2008 Carling Cup final where he scored the winning goal.

However, 31 minutes of first team football in 16 months have convinced Spurs that his future lies elsewhere.

Tanguy Ndombele believes he will be fit for France by Sunday

However, Ndombele joined his international teammates ahead of the two-week break. The midfielder was quoted by L’Equipe suggesting that the problem wasn’t serious and he should be back soon (h/t Football.london):

“I had tests that said there was nothing serious, it was more fatigue.

“What is certain is that I am fit for Sunday. Thursday may be a little early, I don’t think I’ll be 100%.”

France manager Didier Deschamps also claimed the problem would be “resolved within 48 hours” and didn’t need to call-up someone else.

Ndombele doing well in debut season

Tottenham’s campaign has been far from great as we dropped points again. We have gone five Premier League matches without a win and sit 11 points behind fourth-placed Manchester City after just 12 games.

Ndombele has looked in good touch since joining in the summer from Lyon. The 22-year-old has two goals and three assists so far in the campaign too.

We need him to stay fit for long as there are some big games coming up. Spurs travel to West Ham after the international break and then face Olympiakos, Bournemouth and Manchester United in the next two weeks.

“I don’t feel there is a connection” – Tottenham star doesn’t believe lack of playing time is due to contract issues

Christian Eriksen doesn’t believe contract issues have led to Tottenham snub

Christian Eriksen doesn’t think that his contract situation at Tottenham is the reason for not featuring recently.

The Dane is a free agent at the end of the campaign and has only scored two goals in the season.

Eriksen came off the bench in our win over Red Star Belgrade but didn’t get any minutes in the 1-1 draw against Sheffield United.

The 27-year-old is interested in a move to Real Madrid (h/t Daily Mail) but failed to leave in the summer.

However, Eriksen was quoted by BT saying that his lack of recent playing time isn’t due to his contract (h/t Daily Mail):

“I feel 100 per cent that Tottenham has complete confidence in me. There is not that big a difference, except that I play a little less this year.

“I don’t feel there is a connection between my contract situation and the fact that I haven’t played as many matches.”

Eriksen vows to cut out mistakes

The Dane spoke about some of his mistakes on the pitch and claimed he wasn’t taking the “right decisions” on the pitch.

Eriksen added that he wanted to cut out these errors and improve his sharpness on the pitch too.

The 27-year-old is away with the national team for a crucial Euro 2020 qualifier against Gibraltar.

A win will take the Danes to Euro 2020, and it will be interesting to see how Eriksen does against them.

We need the Dane to be at his best for the rest of the season too. Tottenham’s performances have been below par for most of the campaign, and hopefully, Eriksen regains his form soon.

Mauricio Pochettino explains Tanguy Ndombele substitution in Sheffield United draw

It was another disappointing afternoon for Tottenham are they were held to a 1-1 draw by Sheffield United.

Tottenham took the lead through Son Heung-min in the 58th minute but were pegged back via a freak goal from George Baldock in the 78th minute.

Spurs tried to hit back but couldn’t get that second goal, and we ended up dropping more points in the race for the top four.

Tanguy Ndombele started the game but was eventually replaced at the start of the second half. Mauricio Pochettino was speaking after the game and claimed that the French midfielder never felt comfortable in the game (h/t Football.london).

Pochettino was then asked if the midfielder was injured, and the manager confirmed the Frenchman felt a niggle in the groin (h/t Football.london):

“We need to assess him now. I don’t know anything at this moment. He felt pain in his groin but I don’t know if that was before or during the game it happened.

“Yes, a strange situation because my feeling was that he wasn’t comfortable on the pitch but he said was ok during the game.”

The manager added that the doctor told him that Ndombele could not continue after the break, and said that the change could have affected the team.

Ndombele needs to be fit for Spurs

The Frenchman has made a decent impact since joining from Lyon this season. Ndombele has two goals and three assists for Spurs so far and has done better than our other summer signings.

Tottenham to assess three players before Sheffield United clash

Tottenham picked up an important win over Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League.

Spurs had come into the game without a win in their last four Premier League clashes, but a professional performance saw us beat the hosts 4-0.

Son Heung-min grabbed a brace in the clash while Christian Eriksen and Giovani Lo Celso also scored.

It was great to see Lo Celso finally start a game for Tottenham after his summer move. The Argentine has suffered from a hip problem in recent months but scored the opener in this game.

Our next game is against an impressive Sheffield United. The Blades have drawn with Chelsea and beaten Arsenal in the Premier League so far and will be tough opposition.

“Now we’ve finished the game we need to assess all the players now.

“We need to assess Dele, we need to assess Tanguy, we need to assess Giovani.”

The manager spoke about our tough schedule too as we were in action against Everton last weekend.

Lo Celso and Sessegnon do their bit

Tottenham haven’t seen much of Lo Celso or Ryan Sessegnon after they joined the club in the summer.

However, the pair contributed in our win over Red Star in midweek. Sessegnon came off the bench and assisted Eriksen for the fourth goal, and it will be interesting to see if they feature in our next clash.
