Burnley has completed the signing of Spurs winger Georges-Kevin N'Koudou on loan until the end of the season.

The 22-year-old has only played once in the Premier League for Tottenham Hotspur in 2017-18, although he scored in his last appearance for the club against APOEL in the Champions League in December.

Georges-Kevin N'Koudou has now chosen to spend the rest of the campaign at Turf Moor, having spoken with Spurs team-mate Kieran Trippier – who spent three years in Lancashire – before deciding on the move.

"When I spoke with Trippier he told me good things about this club, about the players and everything about Burnley. I am happy to be here, so thank you Trippier," N'Koudou said.

"Everyone is shocked because Burnley is just after the big six [in the table]. They have played very well.

"I watched the last game against Liverpool when they played very well and were unlucky. That's why I have come here: to find football.

"I knew he [Sean Dyche] is a big manager who likes young players and players who go forward, so it suits my character to come here and I am happy to work with him.

"I hope to help the club. If I can, I will. But the last word is with the manager. If he puts me on the pitch I will do everything to help the team go forward.

"I am ready to play and waiting on the starting blocks. If the manager puts me on the pitch I will do everything on the pitch."
