Tottenham Winger To Join Burnley On Loan Until The End Of The Season

Out-of-favour winger Georges-Kevin N’Koudou is set to join Burnley on loan until the end of the season.

The Cameroon international joined Spurs from Marseille 18 months ago in an £11m deal, but he has found first-team chances in the side extremely limited. In all, N’Koudou has made just nine Premier League appearances, all of which have come from the substitutes’ bench.

Several clubs in France, including Saint-Etiene, had been looking into the possibility of taking the 22-year-old back to Ligue 1, but Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino was reluctant to let him go on a permanent basis and reportedly still sees the forward as part of his future plans

Burnley manager Sean Dyche, meanwhile, was eager to add more wide players to his side, particularly with the likely loss of Irish international Robbie Brady for the remainder of the season with a knee injury. The Clarets have been in tremendous form so far this season, occupying seventh place in the Premier League table and knocking on the door for a Europa League place.

All going well, the deal should be confirmed by both parties in due course.
