N’Koudou has joined Burnley from Tottenham on loan for the rest of the season in the January transfer window.
The 22-year-old moved to Spurs from French club Marseille in the summer of 2016 for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be £9 million.
The French youngster has struggled to play regularly for Tottenham, and he will hope to establish himself as an important player for Sean Dyche’s Burnley team in the coming weeks.
Tottenham manager Pochettino has explained his decision to leave N’Koudou leave on loan for Premier League rivals Burnley.
Pochettino told Football.London: “I think GK wasn't involved too much and of course he's young and he needed to play more and feel more involved in the games.
“It's a great opportunity for him to show for Burnley. I hope and I wish he plays a lot there and can show his quality there.”
Pochettino has also made a joke about signing players, and told Football.London when asked if he is any close to signing any new players: “Until today, now, nobody is close to arriving in this transfer window.
“Maybe in the last five minutes who knows (laughs). But when we stepped into this room nothing close.”
It seems that Tottenham are not close to signing any new player in the January transfer window, or maybe Pohettino does not want to disclose too much at this stage of the window.
Spurs will take on Everton at the Wembley Stadium in London in the Premier League on Saturday evening.
