Tottenham outcast Georges-Kevin N’Koudou is set to join old-club Nantes in the summer, believes The Daily Mirror.

The winger joined from Marseille for an £11 million fee in the summer, and was tipped for big things – much the opposite, he has barely had a look in and failed to impress when he’s been given the opportunity.


Contribution? Zilch.

Indeed, he hasn’t started a single Premier League match.

In total, he’s made 12 appearances and has produced 0 goals and just 1 assist.


Why did Spurs buy him?

N’Koudou drew Spurs to him with his dribbling and efficient crosses, but has been caught out in a league where wingers are rarely given time to run with the ball.

He cuts an immature figure who needs to develop if he is to cope with the physicality of the Premier League

Mauricio Pochettino has stated that N’Koudou simply needs time to settle, but is rumoured to be unsettled and a return to Nantes would be an attractive proposition.

A loan move back to Nantes might be a deal suitable to both parties.
