Clinton N’Jie is close to joining Marseille on loan, according to French newspaper L’Equipe.
Once N’Jie’s departure is confirmed, Tottenham will be able to officially announce the permanent signing of Marseille winger Georges-Kevin N’Koudou.
N’Koudou, who is expected to cost Spurs around £11 million, appeared to confirm his transfer via Twitter the evening before deadline day.

N’Jie’s first season in England was disrupted by a number of injuries. The striker made only handful of appearances for Tottenham and failed to register a single goal.
There are suggestions N’Jie is keen to return to his former club Lyon. But L’Equipe appear confident he will join Marseille as expected, meaning N’Koudou’s transfer should go through without any problems.
N’Koudou has been training with Spurs since last week and is likely to be eager for the deal to go through as soon as possible.
In addition to N’Koudou, Espanyol goalkeeper Pau Lopez could arrive on deadline day, and reports suggest Tottenham are also monitoring the situation of Newcastle United outcast Moussa Sissoko.
