Tottenham Hotspur have burst into life in the last hour or so, and could have as many as three signings over the line by close of play tonight.

Having been relatively quiet in terms of signings in recent weeks, Spurs have confirmed two new players this evening – and a third could follow later tonight.

Firstly, the Premier League side have finally confirmed the arrival of Marseille winger Georges-Kévin N’Koudou on a five-year deal. Tottenham reportedly agreed a fee of around €13m for the 21-year-old over a month ago, but for whatever reason, the deal was only confirmed this evening – nonetheless, the France under-21 international is now a Tottenham player.

In fact, Spurs themselves referenced the amount of time the deal took with a tongue-in-cheek video:

As part of the deal, Tottenham forward Clinton N’Jie has moved in the opposite direction on a season-long loan.

Soon after, Tottenham also confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Pau López from Espanyol. The Spaniard moves to White Hart Lane on a season-long loan deal, though it is not known as yet if there is an option to make the transfer permanent at the end of the season.

The 21-year-old moves to England having lost his place in the Espanyol team to new signing Roberto.

Those deals are done, but the biggest transfer of the night from a Tottenham point of view could be yet to come. Spurs approached Newcastle this morning with an offer for Moussa Sissoko, one which was rejected by the Championship side as it did not meet their £30m valuation, but the deal is apparently not quite dead.

Everton have also been in talks to sign the French international but BBC reporter Ian Dennis has claimed (via one of his sources) that Tottenham now look likely to get the deal done.

The two sides were reasonably far apart in their valuation for the 26-year-old midfielder this morning, so it remains to be seen which of the two clubs has blinked first.
