L’Equipe have reported that Clinton Njie has agreed to join Marseille on loan.
The French paper claims that Marseille will be bound to pay Spurs a fee of €7m once Njie plays a set amount of games for the club.
The news looks set to allow Georges-Kevin Nkoudou to move to White Hart Lane. The winger has passed a medical with the club, with a fee of £10.9m agreed, but Marseille were said to be reluctant to authorise the deal until a replacement had been secured.
Njie was an obvious solution to this problem, with the Cameroon international able to play in Nkoudou’s wide role and having proved himself as a success in Ligue 1 having scored eight goals for Lyon in 2014-15.
The out-of-favour forward turned down a return to France with Marseille earlier this week, but seems to have had a change of heart. With competition for places at Tottenham set to be even fiercer this season, this seems to be the best decision for all parties involved.
