Sky: Final hurdle as Tottenham close in on £11m deal

By Tom Blackburn

Tottenham are waiting for Marseille to complete their loan arrangement for Clinton N’Jie so they can confirm the arrival of Georges-Kevin N’Koudou, according to a report.

Sky Sports claim on their website that a swap deal between the clubs is agreed but ownership changes at Marseille have slowed the transfer, which is now just dependant on N’Jie agreeing a loan.

Sky Sports reported on their transfer centre blog on Friday (12:39pm) that N’Koudou has been training with Spurs since last weej after being given permission by his club.

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

Sky Sports reported last week on their official Twitter account that Spurs had agreed a fee of £11million for N’Koudou.

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 two weeks agi, 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.

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 in August.
