Burnley have agreed to a deal to sign Tottenham winger Georges-Kevin Nkoudou on loan for the rest of the season, as reported by BBC. The 22-year-old has found opportunities limited since his move to White Hart Lane from Marseille in August 2016.

He has made only 22 appearances in all competitions since his arrival and has played just one minute in the Premier League this season.

Nkoudou has made 6 appearances this season, the latest being a substitute appearance in Sunday’s FA Cup win over AFC Wimbledon.

“That’s why I have come here, to find football,” Nkoudou said in a statement on Burnley’s website.

“I knew Sean Dyche is a big manager who likes young players and players who go forward, so it suits my character to come here and I am happy to work with him.

“I hope to help the club. If I can, I will. But the last word is with the manager. If he puts me on the pitch I will do everything to help the team go forward. I am ready to play and waiting on the starting blocks. If the manager puts me on the pitch I will to everything on the pitch.”

The Versailles-born wideman who made a goalscoring appearance in the Champions League against Apoel Nicosia at Wembley in December, revealed that he had sought the advice of former Burnley favourite and Tottenham team-mate Kieran Trippier over his temporary move.

“When I spoke with Trippier he told me good things about this club, about the players and everything about Burnley. I am happy to be here, so thank-you Trippier,” Nkoudou added.

“I think it’s a big opportunity to play my first minutes this season in the Premier League. Everyone is shocked because Burnley is just after the big six. They have played very well. I watched the last game against Liverpool when they played very well and were unlucky.”

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino was keen to create a space for fit-again Érik Lamela in his Champions League squad and Nkoudou’s temporary departure means the Argentina international will now be added to the squad ahead of our last-16 tie against Juventus.

Pochettino still sees Nkoudou having a future at the club and hence was content to sanction a loan-deal. Now the onus is on Nkoudou to prove himself at Burnley and come back stronger next season.

Ryan Mason Tottenham

Ryan Mason

Former Tottenham star Ryan Mason’s football career came to a premature end after he picked up a skull fracture while playing for Hull City.

The former Spurs was facing Chelsea and hung his boots in 2018 but is adored by many fans.

Now 27, the midfielder shared a video of him scoring a goal for us four years ago and what a strike it was from the Englishman.

This was Mason’s first goal for Spurs and it came in a League Cup fixture against Nottingham Forest.

The midfielder might not have been the most gifted player ever but he always gave 100% on the pitch and his move to Hull City, unfortunately, did not work out.

Mason played for numerous clubs in the English system, serving stints at Millwall, Yeovil Town and Doncaster Rovers.

The former Spurs star also had one cap for the England national side in 2015 and a number of fans tweeted their love for the player after his post.

“Most entertaining”, “The ending…” – Some Spurs fans love latest advert featuring accommodation partner

Vorm Eriksen Tottenham

Tottenham posted a video of their tie-up with Hotels.com, our official accommodation partner, and it was an interesting video, to say the least.

Spurs players Christian Eriksen, Michel Vorm, Ben Davies and Juan Foyth participated in some “hotel-related” drills in the two-minute long ad.

It was fun to see Eriksen and co carrying luggage around an obstacle course while the Dane also dropped drinks glasses from his tray.

There were a few laughs too as Vorm wasn’t able to fold the quilt in the right manner and some of the fans saw the funny side of the video.

Tottenham haven’t started the season well and were lucky to get all three points against Brighton in our previous game. However, it was nice to see the players having a great time in the fun advert.

The video certainly was done pretty well and the ending is something to behold too.

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish has signed a new five-year deal with Aston Villa that includes a huge release clause, according to the Sun.

The report adds that Tottenham offered £25million for the midfielder in the summer. But to sign him now, we would have to double the amount.

Grealish was one of the stars for the Villans last season but they missed out on promotion to the Premier League.

Villa aren’t doing well in the Championship as they lie 13th with 13 points from nine games. Grealish is yet to score for his boyhood club in the ongoing term.

With his selling price doubled, as per the report, some Tottenham fans weren’t sure about the club making a move for the player while a few blamed Daniel Levy for botching the transfer.
