Seeing as the English transfer window has now closed for Premier League and Championship sides, the only business that Tottenham can do is let players go, and it looks like Daniel Levy is about to do just that.

Spurs fans can’t really complain on the transfer front as Daniel Levy delivered emphatically during the summer transfer window, bringing the likes of Giovani Lo Celso, Ryan Sessegnon, Jack Clarke and Tanguy Ndombele to north London. And, it looks as if he could be about to deliver once again, but this time it involves a potential exit.
Georges-Kevin N’Koudou hasn’t had the best of times in N17, making just 27 appearances in his three years at Tottenham. The Frenchman has hardly been a favourite of Mauricio Pochettino, and now, according to L’Equipe, the winger is set to sign for Besiktas for a fee of around 5m euros.
Most of the fans are delighted with the news. It’s a small sum to receive, but with the winger unlikely to leave his mark and make a difference given he’s competing with the likes of Heung-min Son, Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura, cashing in seems the smart move.

The Lilywhites all seem delighted that N’Koudou is on his way out, and it’s now up to the winger to show what he can do outside of London.
