An entire month after Georges Kevin N’Koudou reportedly completed a medical at Hotspur Way, today he has finally been announced as a Tottenham Hotspur player, with Clinton N’Jie going to Marseille as a part of the deal.
The change of ownership at Marseille caused complications in regards to the transfer of N’Koudou to Spurs. According to several news outlets, N’Koudou spent three and a half weeks in a London hotel near the training ground as he waited (and waited, and waited) for the final phases of his move to be completed.
In the last four days, N’Koudou was granted permission by Marseille to train with the north London club ahead of the last few pieces of his transfer documents were being signed off.
Surely this has to go down as one of the longest transfer saga in ages? Let’s hope that all the efforts to lure N’Koudou to White Hart Lane will be repaid on the pitch by the young French winger.
Best wishes to Georges-Kevin N’Koudou at Tottenham Hotspur – here’s to many happy seasons at his new club.
