Transfer roundup: Tottenham's Georges-Kévin Nkoudou to join Burnley on loan


Burnley have signed Tottenham Hotspur's French winger Georges-Kevin Nkoudou on loan until the end of the season, the Premier League clubs said on Tuesday.

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.

Sean Dyche's side, who are only two places below Tottenham in the league table, have been chasing a winger after seeing their options in that area depleted last month when Republic of Ireland worldwide Robbie Brady underwent knee surgery. In all, N'Koudou has made just nine Premier League appearances, all of which have come from the substitutes' bench. I am happy to be here, so thank you Trippier. Both forwards have been sparsely utilised by Claude Puel since the Frenchman's arrival at the King Power Stadium, with Musa yet to play a single minute in the Premier League this season.

The speed machine has made six appearances for Spurs this season, with just one start.

France's Macron proposes law to combat fake news
He has been particularly critical of Russian media, openly accusing it of spreading lies about him on websites and social media. Macron himself was the target of a fake news campaign during the 2017 French presidential election.

"I watched the last game against Liverpool when they played very well and were unlucky".

The loan doesn't include a stipulation to make the move permanent, as Pochettino sees Nkoudou playing a key part in Tottenham's future makeup.

The former France under-21 worldwide scored his first goal for the club in last month's 3-0 win over Apoel Nicosia in the Champions League. Loaning Nkoudou allows for Spurs to register Erik Lamela for the Champions League, ensuring the Argentinian is available for the pivotal round-of-16 tie against Juventus.
