GEORGES-KEVIN N'KOUDOU has joined Burnley on loan for the rest of the season.
On the events that transpired leading up to his move, Nkoudou said that he spoke to his Tottenham team-mate Kieran Trippier, who said all good things about the Clarets, making his decision easier. "I am happy to be here, so thank-you Trippier", Nkoudou told his new club's official website.
"I think it's a big opportunity to play my first minutes this season in the Premier League".

The France Under-21 global has made just six appearances for Spurs this campaign, only playing once in the Premier League.
The loan doesn't include a stipulation to make the move permanent, as Pochettino sees Nkoudou playing a key part in Tottenham's future makeup.
His one and only start came in this seasons Champions League campaign against APOEL where he got himself on the score sheet, scoring his first goal for the club in the process.
But just nine starts later, the midfielder has not found first-team football easy to come by at the North London club. I knew he [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.
