Photo: Clinton N'Jie in England on Wednesday despite claims of France trip

The Tottenham Hotspur player was not in France today as previously suggested.

A recent report from the Daily Mail claimed Tottenham Hotspur player Clinton N’Jie had travelled to France today to discuss a move to Marseille, but a photograph doing the rounds on social media appears to have quashed that suggestion.

N’Jie was caught on camera with many of his Tottenham teammates enjoying some lunch at Sheesh which, rather than being in France is actually in Chigwell.

Of course you can get across the channel pretty quickly these days, but the photograph suggests that whatever is around the corner, the 22-year-old spent Wednesday in England rather than discussing a possible loan move back to Ligue 1.

That does not mean N’Jie’s future is definitely at Tottenham, yet when you consider that a recent report from Sky Sports suggested the Cameroon international wants to remain in North London and fight for his place, the ongoing rumours regarding his future could be nothing more than tittle-tattle.

It could be argued that he deserves more time to prove himself; the question is will his manager Mauricio Pochettino grant him that opportunity considering the challenges ahead?
