Harry Kane delivers verdict on Tottenham fringe player
By Harvey Byrne
Star forward Harry Kane has told that he believes his Tottenham teammate Georges-Kevin N’Koudou to be a nice, chilled and calm person.
The 22-year-old attacker made the transfer to Spurs in the summer for French club Marseille for a fee of £11million.
He has however struggled to make an impact in his debut season at the club alongside fellow summer additions Vincent Janssen and Moussa Sissoko, while midfield enforcer Victor Wanyama has shone.
Because of this fans have had a limited chance to see what N’Koudou can do out on the pitch, but off the field Kane has spoken highly of the young attacker’s character in a praising verdict.
“So I sit next to GK N’Koudou,” started Kane when speaking to Dugout about who he sits next to on the club’s coach for away matches.

“I had no one there before the start of the season, so GK came and took that place. He’s nice and chilled and calm, so he’s not a bad one to sit next to.”
N’Koudou has started just two cup matches for Tottenham since his summer move and has returned one assist in 17 outings in total.
He will be hoping for more pitch time in the next campaign and fans will also be excited to see the young prospect fulfil his potential at the club.
He could also be handed his first Premier League start for Spurs against either Leicester or Hull in the final two matches with the team having nothing to play for but a good finish.
