Fourth Spurs player leaves this week

Clinton N’Jie has become the latest player to depart Tottenham Hotspur after it was confirmed that he has joined Marseille on a permanent deal.

The Cameroon international moved to White Hart Lane in August 2015 for a transfer fee of £8.3million after impressing at Lyon, where he had scored 22 goals in 97 appearances for the Ligue 1 outfit.

N’Jie failed to make the breakthrough at Tottenham and never started a Premier League game for us.  In all, he made 8 Premier League appearances from the substitutes bench, the longest being a 79 minute display when he came on for the injured Nacer Chadli at Anfield and never scored a goal.

He was shipped off to Marseille for the 2016/17 season, where they had the option to buy the 23-year-old winger at the end of the agreement which they have now taken up.  During his loan spell, he scored 4 goals in 19 appearances.

N’Jie joins Kyle Walker, Federico Fazio and Luke McGee in departing the club this week.  Who knows, maybe we’re making some room for some arrivals?

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. There is no point in having a rant about the transfer policy of Levy because we may all be in for a surprise.Our first home game is vital.It will lay down a marker for the season,lose it badly and title hopes will be severely dented.How many times have we pleaded to have a settled team with any new signings bedded in prior to the first kick off.If our manager believes that our present team is ready,so be it,and say so.we can therefore ignore the daft stories being printed..If not stop faffing around and get the business done for a fair price.not a Levy’ price !!
