Tottenam's Georges-Kevin Nkoudou loan to Burnley a win-win move

It is being suggested that Spurs winger Georges-Kevin Nkoudou is close to a loan move to Burnley for the rest of the season. But the 22-year-old is still at the lower reaches of Mauricio Pochettino's pecking order and a move to Burnley is the best way to make sure he has an improved chance of cracking Tottenham's top 11 in seasons to come.

N'Koudou's departure to Burnley is not likely to signal the end of his Tottenham career, with reports in France stating that Pochettino and chairman Daniel Levy are hopeful the player can improve further and want him to return to the club at the end of the campaign.

Burnley are in need of options out wide having lost Robbie Brady to a knee injury for the rest of the season.

"I think it's a big opportunity to play my first minutes this season in the Premier League".

Kieran Trippier "sold" Burnley to N'Koudou, telling the French youngster "good things about this club, about the players and everything about Burnley". "I am happy to be here, so thank-you Trippier", Nkoudou told his new club's official website.


Despite this, the loan deal does not include a permanent at the end of the six months.

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.

Two of those came in the Champions League, including a goalscoring appearance against Apoel Nicosia at Wembley in December. They have played very well.

It also means Erik Lamela can take his spot in Tottenham's Champions League squad ahead of the last-16 clash with Juventus set to take place next month. That's why I have come here, to find football.
