Midfielder back in training with club as reported Tottenham talks stall
By Joe Nelson
Clinton N’Jie was spotted training with the Tottenham first team on Tuesday as talks with Marseille continue over the departure of the Cameroon winger.
Sky Sports claimed on their website last weekend that Spurs are having to renegotiate the Georges-Kevin N’Koudou-Clinton N’Jie swap deal agreed last month because of a change of ownership at the French giants.
N’Jie was seen arriving for training with the likes of Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Eric Dier on Tuesday morning, as Spurs prepare for their first Premier League game of the season this Saturday away to Everton.

It is said that winger N’Koudou completed a medical and agreed personal terms with Spurs on 19 July, while N’Jie also agreed to go the other way and join Marseille on loan.
The deal was initially delayed because N’Jie had to wait on the renewal of his working visa in France after completing a medical with the Ligue 1 club in London.

N’Jie was granted a work permit on 5 August and had been in Paris, while N’Koudou is also waiting to make the move the other way three weeks after Spurs agreed to buy him for £10.8million from Marseille.
Sky report that negotiations are still ongoing as the new owners of the French club have wanted additions made to the deal that was agreed by the previous ownership.
