Georges-Kevin Nkoudou is on the verge of ending his nightmare three-years at Tottenham by joining 2016/2017 Turkish champions Besiktas.

The winger, who signed for Spurs for around £11m back in 2016, never made a Premier League start during his time in North London and featured just 26 times in total, scoring once, in a 3-0 Champions League victory over APOEL back in December of 2017.

Nkoudou was left out of Tottenham’s pre-season tour of the Far East last month, but was then given a reprieve just weeks later as he was included in the travelling party that went to Germany for the Audi Cup. And the 24-year-old caught the eye as he set up Erik Lamela’s opener in their penalty shoot-out victory over hosts Bayern Munich in the final.

The former Monaco and Burnley loanee was then a late substitute for Spurs’ opening-day victory over Aston Villa last week, but his time in the Premier League never looked likely to be extended and according to Football.London, he will sign for Besiktas on a permanent deal and will cost the Turkish outfit around £5m.
