Reports from France suggest that Clinton Njie has passed his medical with Marseille.
La Provence have claimed that Njie’s medical has been completed, paving the way for him to join Marseille on loan.
If Njie plays a certain amount of games it will trigger a permanent deal which would see Marseille pay Spurs €7m for the Cameroon international.
With Njie’s departure seemingly imminent, we can expect Georges-Kevin Nkoudou’s move in the opposite direction to be officially announced shortly. Nkoudou passed a medical at Tottenham las week ahead of £10.8m transfer.
The French U21 international scored ten goals in his debut season for Marseille after a £1m move from Nantes. The cash-strapped French giants have made a quick profit on Nkoudou, while picking up a player to replace him who is a proven talent in Ligue 1, in what seems to be a rare instance where a transfer deal works out for the best for all involved.
