Tottenham Hotspur winger Georges-Kevin N’Koudou is close to joining St Etienne on loan, report France Football.
N’Koudou is not in Tottenham’s plans this season after failing to win over manager Mauricio Pochettino, despite some encouraging pre-season displays.
France Football report: “The different parties would be very close to an agreement on a loan with option to buy for the left winger.”
St Etienne are looking for a new winger after Romain Hamdouma suffered an injury in the opening game of the season.
N’Koudou reportedly rejected the chance to join Mainz on loan last week, according to French website But! Football.
That report claimed N’Koudou was one of two players being considered by St Etienne.
N’Koudou began his career with Nantes, before signing with Marseille, and clinching a move to Tottenham Hotspur a year later.
His time at the club has been a struggle, denied a regular run of opportunities, but he did himself few favours with a disappointing loan spell at Burnley.
