Tottenham's Georges-Kevin Nkoudou set for Monaco loan - sources

Monaco are in advanced talks with Tottenham about a loan deal for Georges-Kevin Nkoudou, sources have told ESPN FC.

The Frenchman, who joined Spurs from Marseille in the summer of 2016, spent the second half of last season on loan with Burnley and has again struggled for game time in north London this term, only making three appearances.

While the 23-year-old set up a late winning goal shortly after coming off the bench at Fulham on Jan. 20, he disappointed when handed a rare start against Crystal Palace on Sunday, missing a key chance as Spurs lost 2-0 and exited the FA Cup.

Monaco hope to take Nkoudou, who has also attracted interest from St Etienne and Beskitas, back to Ligue 1 and sources have told ESPN FC that a positive outcome is expected before Thursday's 11 p.m. transfer deadline.
