FORMER Manchester United star Ander Herrera is said to have turned down a move to Tottenham because of his loyalty to the Red Devils.
This is yet another blow to Antonio Conte this transfer window as fans are hungry for a new addition.
According to The Athletic, Herrera’s name has been mentioned as part of a deal that will see Tanguy Ndombele go in a different direction to Paris Saint-Germain.
But Herrera insists he is ‘happy’ with the French giants and ‘just wants to play for Manchester United in England’.
But for Ndombele, it seems the issue is when and not if he leaves London.
And it looks like a return to familiar surroundings for the man Spurs have paid a club-record fee of £65m for.
He had back to Lyon loan until the end of the season for a fee of £1.25 million.
Fans took to the airport in the French city to welcome the midfielder back to the club following his departure in the summer of 2019.

Ndombele underwent a medical before completing a loan move to Lyon, which is believed to include a buy option.
Antonio Conte has frozen him since arriving in North London and desperately wants to get rid of him this month.
Valencia is said to have been accepted a bid by Spurs but Ndombele would love to return to France.
Tottenham are currently bracing for a busy deadline day with the possibility of more departures.
