N'Koudou has struggled to make an impact over 18 months at Spurs

New Burnley signing Georges-Kevin Nkoudou has said that it will be "a big opportunity" for him to clock up first minutes in the Premier League this season after securing a season-long loan deal from Tottenham Hotspur.

Nkoudou has struggled to make an impact in the Tottenham Hotspur first-team after signing from Marseille in August 2016 for a fee just shy of £10 million.

The pacy Versailles-born wideman, who has operated predominantly as a left-sided player, has since made 22 appearances for Spurs, including six this season.

His one and only start came in this seasons Champions League campaign against APOEL where he got himself on the score sheet, scoring his first goal for the club in the process.

Letting Nkoudou go spread his wings and gain confidence is another intelligent bit of business from Pochettino and company, the dividends of which will be paid out when the Frenchman returns to Spurs as a full-fledged Premier League player.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche, meanwhile, was eager to add more wide players to his side, particularly with the likely loss of Irish global Robbie Brady for the remainder of the season with a knee injury.

Kieran Trippier "sold" Burnley to N'Koudou, telling the French youngster "good things about this club, about the players and everything about Burnley". They have played very well. That's why I have come here, to find football.

Tottenham man Nkoudou will give manager Sean Dyche options including much-needed cover for Robbie Brady, who is likely to miss most of the rest of the season with a serious knee injury. But the last word is with the manager.

It also means Erik Lamela can take his spot in Tottenham's Champions League squad ahead of the last-16 clash with Juventus set to take place next month.
