It looks as though Tottenham Hotspur will finally be getting hold of Georges-Kevin N’Koudou this summer.

After a month of tense negotiations, the French youngster finally looks to be on his way to Spurs, with the English club seemingly winning the deal – according to reports in France.

Firstly, L’Equipe are reporting that Spurs will pay €2 million (£1.7 million) less than originally agreed in July.

The report then details the manner of Clinton N’Jie’s move in the other direction.

The report, as relayed by Buzz Sport, claims that N’Jie’s loan deal will have a compulsory €7 million (£6.1 million) buying option included if he plays a certain amount of games.

That will be a loss on the amount Spurs paid to bring him from Lyon last summer.

However, the other bonus is the apparent sell-on clause that will then be in his contract at Marseille.

The report claims that Spurs will be entitled to a whopping 50 per cent of any transfer fee should Marseille then sell N’Jie in the future.

This would be an excellent piece of business for Spurs, as N’Jie has struggled to settle at the club and N’Koudou could be a real hit.

As for Marseille, their fans will be disappointed with the way the negotiations have panned out.
