Stan Collymore gives verdict on Tottenham signing of N’Koudou
By Dominic Toner
Stan Collymore has questioned why Tottenham have signed winger Georges-Kevin N’Koudou from Marseille.
Spurs announced on their website on Wednesday evening that they have signed the 21-year-old midfielder on a five-year deal.
The Londoners have been continuously linked with N’Koudou all summer and have finally agreed the deal on the final day of the transfer window.
Pundit and former Liverpool striker Collymore has posted on his personal Twitter account that Spurs should have signed a striker instead of another attacking midfielder.

Following Spurs’ success in the Premier League last season, they now have the welcome distraction of more fixtures in the Champions League.
And Collymore thinks they would have been better off adding another striker to the mix.
N’Koudou joined Marseille from Nantes last summer and the winger scored 10 goals and provided 5 assists in 41 matches in all competitions.
It was an impressive return in a struggling Marseille side.
The midfielder will now battle with his new team-mates Erik Lamela, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Heung-Min Son for an attacking position in the first team.
