The left winger departs after struggling to make a first-team breakthrough in north London over the past season.
N’Koudou, per Transfermarkt, has made three appearances for the club this season, playing 90 minutes once, in the FA Cup defeat to Crystal Palace.
He joined the club from Marseille in 2016 for a fee of around £9m and, having spent part of last season on loan at Burnley, will now return to Ligue 1 as he looks to get his career back on track.
The deal is the second departure Spurs have sanctioned this month after allowing Belgian midfielder Mousa Dembele to move to China earlier in the window.
However, they have yet to make a new signing themselves, and Spurs fans cannot understand why N’Koudou has been allowed to leave, such has been their inactivity in the transfer window.

Only we could ship players out when when have about 50 injuries and still won’t sign anyone ?

So even less squad depth now.

Not strengthening in the summer was one thing, selling our best CM & weakening an injury ravaged squad now is suicide.

So 2 layers out and yet again no strengthening of the squad. Do Levy and poch genuinely want spurs to improve or not. Seems they’ve written off this season already.
