Burnley bring in Nkoudou on loan from Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur's French midfielder Georges Kevin N'Koudou runs away from Apoel Nicosia's Portuguese midfielder Nuno Morais during the UEFA Champions League Group H football match

The 22-year-old Frenchman will undergo a medical in the north-west on Tuesday and could be available for the Clarets' next Premier League clash with Crystal Palace at the weekend.

The Cameroon global joined Spurs from Marseille 18 months ago in an £11m deal, but he has found first-team chances in the side extremely limited.

And Nkoudou has only made one appearance in the Premier League this season, with his five other outings occuring in cup competitions.

N'Koudou, has only started once for Mauricio Pochettino this season, in a 3-0 win over APOEL in which he scored.

"When I spoke with Trippier he told me good things about this club, about the players and everything about Burnley. I am happy to be here, so thank you Trippier", Nkoudou told Burnley's official website.


The former France Under-21 global has made 22 appearances in all competitions since moving to England but has played just a single minute in the top flight this season - against Bournemouth in October - although he has made six appearances in total. They have played very well.

But just nine starts later, the midfielder has not found first-team football easy to come by at the North London club.

Tottenham man Nkoudou will give manager Sean Dyche options including much-needed cover for Robbie Brady, who is likely to miss most of the rest of the season with a serious knee injury. Loaning Nkoudou allows for Spurs to register Erik Lamela for the Champions League, ensuring the Argentinian is available for the pivotal round-of-16 tie against Juventus.

"I hope to help the club". But the last word is with the manager.

"I am ready to play and waiting on the starting blocks".
