Georges Kevin-N'koudou seems to have jumped the gun and confirmed his move to Tottenham Hotspur from French club Marseille, via a social media post. The attacker has been training with the north London club, but the clubs are yet to announce the deal, which has been in the pipeline prior to the start of the Premier League season.
According to Sky Sports, Spurs are waiting on the Ligue 1 club to complete the loan signing of Clinton N'jie before making an official announcement. The Cameroon international, who joined the White Hart Lane outfit last summer has failed to nail down a regular place in the squad and Mauricio Pochettino wants to ensure that he gets regular first-team football.
The deal for the France U21 international was expected to be completed much earlier in the window, but a hierarchy change at the Ligue 1 club threatened to derail the move. However, the clubs are said to have reached common ground and have agreed a deal around £11m ($14.4m). N'koudou, who has been in north London for over a week, has all but confirmed his move after he posted an image with Tottenham's motto To Dare Is To Do on his official Twitter account.
Meanwhile, French publication L'equipe reported that N'jie's move to Marseille will be confirmed on Wednesday (31 August) after the player agreed to a season-long loan move. He is expected to arrive in France to sign the contract, which will allow Tottenham to confirm the signing of N'koudou.
The 21-year-old forward, who can operate on the wings or as a central striker, is likely to fill the void left by Nacer Chadli, who completed a move to West Bromwich Albion for an undisclosed fee earlier in the week. The Frenchman will compete for a starting role with Erik Lamela and Son Heung-Min.
