Marseille attacker Georges Kevin-N'Koudou's proposed move to Tottenham Hotspur is yet to be completed despite the Frenchman arriving in London. The two clubs had agreed a deal for the forward, which would also see Clinton N'jie move in the opposite direction on a season-loan, but the move is yet to take place following drastic changes to the Ligue 1 club's hierarchy in the wake of the resignation of long time chairman Vincent Labrune.
According to Sky Sports, the change in the club's board, which has seen the arrival of a new chairman and sporting director, is the main reason for the moves to be held up, but both the clubs are hoping to conclude a deal at the earliest. N'Koudou and N'jie have completed their medicals with the respective clubs, with Spurs also said to have agreed personal terms with the France U21 winger.
Tottenham are said to have agreed a €13m (£10.9m, $14.3m) deal with Marseille for the versatile attacker after he impressed during the 2015/16 campaign. The 21-year-old, who only joined the Ligue 1 club from Nantes last summer, scored 10 goals and provided five assists in 41 appearances in all competitions. However, the club's new chairman and sporting director are said to be keen on reviewing the terms before sanctioning the move.
Mauricio Pochettino made strengthening his offence a priority this summer and has already added Dutch striker Vincent Janssen to the ranks. He confirmed that Spurs were still on the market for more signings, and N'jie's departure was only sanctioned after Marseille agreed to approve the sale of N'koudou.
According to French publication La Provence, the Cameroon international, who joined Spurs from Lyon last summer, will join initially on a season-loan, but the French club will have the option of making the move permanent at the end of the campaign for a fee of around €7m. The report also claims that N'Koudou is currently in London waiting for the two clubs to reach an agreement in order to complete his move and join his new teammates at White Hart Lane.
