Tottenham may now dump their Newcastle United project, but they want a buy-back clause ...

Tottenham Hotspur are keen to include a buy-back clause in what is becoming a complex transaction.

Tottenham has added Clement Lenglet to their back line, leaving Tanganga well down the pecking order.

Tanganga is caught up behind Cristian Romero, Davinson Sanchez, Eric Dier, Ben Davies, and now Tanganga.

Add in the fact that Tottenham may still need another defender, and it appears like Tanganga isnt in Antonio Contes' plans.

Japhet Tanganga might join AC Milan.

Tanganga has been linked with a number of clubs signing him this summer.

After losing out on Sven Botman to Newcastle United, AC Milan have been the major suitors.

Despite reports in Italy last week that Newcastle was planning to sabotage Milan's acquisition of Tanganga.

Now, that seems a bit out of the realm, and agent Roberto De Fanti is apparently flying to Milan to try and arrange a transfer for Tanganga.

Tanganga may be offered a loan to Milan, according to Calciomercato.

This is where things get a bit complicated, though, as Milan would then have the option to make the move permanent.

In the event of Milan doing so, Tottenham would have a buyback option in the permanent contract, potentially allowing Tanganga to return to Spurs one day.

Tanganga has advanced through the Tottenham ranks and, while there have been encouraging signs from him at times, he needs games.

Tanganga, who would surely jump at the chance to play for Milan, has had a problem with injuries and competition for places.

Tottenham included a buy-back clause in Kyle Walker-Peters' move to Southampton, and it appears to be planned to do it again with Tanganga, giving them the option to bring both academy graduates back to the club one day.
