Tottenham midfielder Tanguy Ndombele is considering his future.
The midfielder, 24, did not feature for a single minute across the five pre-season matches.
The Athletic says the £55million record signing could leave Spurs before deadline day at the end of August if he remains sidelined.
Ndombele had paternity leave during pre-season but trained and was available for the friendlies with Chelsea and Arsenal – but was simply not picked for the matchday squad by new boss Nuno Espirito Santo.
It looks very unlikely he will be involved against champions Manchester City in their Premier League opener this Sunday as he still needs to win over Santo.
