Burnley have signed Tottenham’s Georges-Kévin Nkoudou on loan until the end of the season. The France Under-21 international will move to Turf Moor having found his opportunities limited under Mauricio Pochettino.
Sean Dyche and Saint-Étienne had shown an interest in signing Nkoudou on a permanent basis but it is understood Pochettino was keen to retain a player who joined on the final day of the August 2016 transfer window for £9.4m.
“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 do everything on the pitch.”
