Tottenham Hotspur look to be parting with yet another player this summer as Georges-Kevin Nkoudou inches towards an exit.
The Evening Standard reported earlier today that the winger was close to agreeing a move to Besiktas, even landing in Turkey this morning to finalise the deal.
The Turkish side are said to be paying Spurs £4.6m for the Frenchman who has found himself on the sidelines for the vast majority of his three-year Spurs career.
Nkoudou joined from Marseille back in 2016 for £9m (BBC), so Spurs are taking a hit but will likely be pleased to get him off the wage bill. He will now earn around £29,000 a week at Besiktas on a four-year deal.
Georges-Kevin played a total of 26 matches in a Tottenham shirt, scoring just one goal. He also spent time out on loan to Burnley and Monaco but only appeared 11 times in total due to injuries. (Wikipedia).
We wish Nkoudou all the best for the future.
Some Spurs fans have reacted to the news on Twitter:
Good luck GK ? if you hadn’t put that cross in at Craven Cottage we would’ve finished outside Champions League places, and for that alone we are all immensely thankful for

I won’t lie you’ve had a tough time, but you’re leaving in class and with your head held high.
I’ll never forget that assist at Fulham.
Good luck pal, and make sure you don’t wear any Galatasary training tops. ??
