Spurs are unlikely to make a huge number of additions to the squad over the January transfer window, but here are three players that would benefit from loan moves away from Spurs this month.
1) Georges-Kevin N’Koudou
The summer signing has obviously failed to impress Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino since his deadline day arrival, and has played just over 30 minutes of Premier League this season.
The winger arrived from Marseille for a reported £11m on deadline day, with a good reputation and high hopes of making a big difference for Spurs in the first half of this Premier League season. But playing just over half an hour of league football has not helped the Frenchman progress.
N’Koudou did play in the 2-1 away defeat in the EFL Cup against Liverpool at Anfield, slipped in the build-up to the first Liverpool goal, and didn’t have too much of an impact in what was a disappointing display for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
Playing time in English football is probably just what N’Koudou needs. Providing he has overcome the language barrier he faced when he first came to England, then a move away from Spurs on loan might be beneficial if he can get the playing time.
We have heard that N’Koudou is a very fast left winger that can torment and beat defenders for fun on his day, but we are yet to see anything of the kind from the Frenchman as yet. A move away temporarily might be just what he needs to progress.
