Tottenham have confirmed the transfer of Georges-Kevin N’Koudou from Marseille – and Spurs supporters are happy that the club have finally confirmed the signing of the France Under-21 international.
The north London club revealed on their official Twitter account on Wednesday evening that they had signed the 21-year-old.

The youngster was a summer-long target for Spurs and it was believed that Clinton N’Jie was holding up the move as he didn’t want to join Marseille.
However, the Cameroon international has now moved in the opposite direction, joining the Ligue 1 giants in a season-long loan deal to put an end to the protracted transfer.
Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to share their delight on the signing, but they also want more before Wednesday’s 11.00pm deadline.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Just can't get excited over N'Koudou. Did we not just have that exact same type of player in N'Jie? The guy didn't even get a chance. #THFC

#thfc Njie joins Marseille on loan for the season. It will certainly be interesting to see how N'Koudou compares after replacing him.

Mauricio Pochettino has already added Dutch attacker Vincent Janssen and defensive midfielder Victor Wanyama from Ajax and Southampton respectively.
Goalkeeper Pau Lopez is also expected to complete a loan move to White Hart Lane before the deadline.
Pochettino has looked to improve his squad this summer from the side which finished in third place last season.
The north London side will compete in the Champions League in the new campaign extending their fixture list and they have been drawn in a group with Monaco, Bayer Leverkusen and CSKA Moscow.
In other Tottenham transfer news, Spurs have enquired about the availability of Manchester United defender Phil Jones.
