Transfer U-turn? Gaffer drops massive hint Spurs deal is back on
According to reports from 360Mercato, Marseille manager Franck Passi has confirmed Georges-Kevin N’Koudou is in England ahead of a potential loan move to Tottenham Hotspur.
Spurs agreed a transfer fee for the 21-year-old, who allegedly completed a White Hart Lane medical soon after, midway through July.

But worryingly little news followed, until it was revealed that the 21-year-old had been hauled up in a hotel waiting for the north Londoners to wrap up transfer talks with the Ligue 1 side.
Earlier this week, French sources finally confirmed the deal had collapsed, but later claimed it could be restructured in the form of a loan move.
And the latest comments from Marseille manager Franck Passi suggest that could well be the case, with the gaffer revealing in today’s press conference that N’Koudou is still in England rather than returning to the French club.
The France U21 was in strong form last season, bagging ten goals and five assists across all competitions.
