Mauricio Pochettino revealed earlier this month that he would be willing to send one or two players away on loan in this window. And it seems Georges-Kevin Nkoudou could be one of those who would be heading out of the north London club on a temporary basis.
The 23-year-old, who is on a £35k-per-week wage at Spurs, has failed to impress Pochettino despite some glowing performance during the pre-season.
The French club are looking to sign him on loan with an option to buy him permanently. Saint Etienne are in the hunt to sign a winger after Romain Hamdouma suffered an injury in the opening game of the season.
Nkoudou is not in Pochettino’s plans, and a loan move away from Spurs is the best solution for all the parties involved.
