Georges-Kevin N’Koudou is set for a permanent Tottenham Hotspur departure. According to French media outlet L’Equipe, Besiktas and Tottenham are close to agreeing on a £4.5m transfer for N’Koudou.
Besiktas are closing in on the signing of the Tottenham winger, who has struggled in England. The former France U21 international is now set for a permanent exit after two loan spells away from North London.
N’Koudou joined Tottenham in 2016 from Marseille after impressing in France. However, he has struggled to nail down a spot in the team and has only played 27 times in three years.
He has one goal and two assists to his name and he came on as a late substitute against Aston Villa on the opening day of this season. However, with Son Heung-Min returning from his suspension, Dele Alli due back soon and new signings Giovani Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon in contention, N’Koudou is surplus to requirements.
The 24-year-old will join Turkish club Besiktas on a permanent deal. After loan spells with Burnley and Monaco, N’Koudou will leave Spurs on a permanent deal.
It is time for Spurs to part ways with N’Koudou. This is a deal that makes sense for all parties. With first-team chances looking bleak at Tottenham, the speedy winger needs to leave for the sake of his career.
Spurs have made a loss on N’Koudou if this reported transfer fee is correct. But they reportedly have a high sell-on fee so they have covered themselves in case he comes good in Turkey.
