Be?ikta? Close to Completing Loan Deal for Spurs Georges-Kévin NKoudou

Tottenham winger Georges-Kévin N'Koudou is close to signing for Beşiktaş on loan before the January transfer window deadline on Thursday. The two clubs have both agreed to a deal, with personal terms to be finalised for the 23-year-old Frenchman.

N'Koudou has found first team appearances incredibly difficult to come by in north London as he completed his first 90 minutes of the season in Sunday's 2-0 FA Cup defeat to Crystal Palace. 

He made his first Premier League appearance of the season away at Fulham just over a week ago, in which he made a short cameo and set up Harry Winks to score the late winner.

It had previously been suggested that ​Galatasaray were looking to bring in the winger, but Beşiktaş have joined the race amid the potential departure of Ricardo Quaresma to FC Porto.

While ​Spurs are interested in Beşiktaş' proposed offer - which includes an option to buy - they are hoping for a standard loan deal with no additional strings, as reported by Footmac.


N'Koudou's severe lack of involvement in Mauricio Pochettino's set up hasn't been helped by the return of ​Son Heung-min from the Asian Cup, as well as ​Christian Eriksen​E​rik Lamela and Lucas Moura all competing for forward positions in the absence of ​Harry Kane and ​Dele Alli.

The winger signed for Spurs from Marseille in 2016 following an impressive 2015/16 season, in which he scored ten goals and provided five assists in all competitions. He has scored only one goal since arriving in England, and made eight appearances on loan at ​Burnley last season.
