Georges-Kévin N’Koudou has agreed the terms of a five-year contract with Tottenham after a breakthrough in his protracted move to White Hart Lane, according to a report.

French publication L’Equipe claim that Spurs and Marseille came to an agreement on Friday to finally end the month-long N’Koudou transfer saga.

It is said that N’Koudou will join the Londoners on a permanent deal and Clinton N’Jie will head the other way on a loan-to-buy deal.

N’Koudou will sign a five-year Spurs agreement with Tottenham and Sky Sports reported on their official Twitter account on Friday night that he will cost around £11million.

The transfers had appeared to be off at the end of last month due to boardroom changes at the Ligue 1 club as well as the structure of the payments.

However, French newspaper L’Equipe claimed in its print edition on Tuesday, as cited by the Sun, that winger N’Koudou had remained in London while he waited for the green light to complete the move.

The deal has been held up while the two clubs haggle over the specifics of the fee, with L’Equipe reporting that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy wanted a special hamstring clause inserted into the agreement.

Nkoudou had originally appeared set to complete his protracted transfer to White Hart Lane at the start of August after Cameroon forward Njie received a work permit to go to Marseille on a season-long loan.

Levy and Marseille attempted to renegotiate the offer for Nkoudou, who completed his medical over three weeks ago and has been in London ever since.

N’Koudou, 21, joined Marseille from Nantes during last summer and the winger proved to be one of the signings of the Ligue 1 campaign, scoring 10 goals and providing 5 assists in 41 matches in all competitions.

N’Koudou’s exploits were all the more impressive due to the fact that he was playing for a struggling Marseille side.

N’Jie, who has struggled to break into the Spur side after suffering injuries and mixed form since joining from Lyon last summer, was pictured in training at Tottenham’s Enfield headquarters last week.
