Tottenham’s £6m-a-start international could leave to make room for new signing

Tottenham Hotspur appear to be prepared to allow Cameroonian forward Clinton N’Jie to leave the club only 12 months and two starts after his arrival.

Spurs signed N’Jie from Lyon last summer for £12m – fee reported by The Telegraph – but he could reportedly be on his way back to France already.

The Guardian claims that Marseille are keen to take the 22-year-old on loan with an option to buy as they prepare to lose Georges-Kevin Nkoudou, to Spurs.

The winger is expected in London for a medical and negotiations with Tottenham after a £10.8m deal was agreed by the two clubs, according to The Guardian.

It seems that Spurs are ready to admit that they signed the wrong Ligue 1 attacker, after N’Jie failed to make any impact in his debut season in North London.

A couple of injury layoffs hampered the 15-times capped international, who did not make a single Premier League start or score a goal in any competition.

His only two Spurs starts have come in the Europa League, while he has come off the bench 12 times. Tottenham never saw the best of him, and perhaps never will.
