Player tells Tottenham he wants to leave before Thursday’s transfer dead line

Takvim report Tottenham Hotspur attacker Georges Kevin N’Koudou has told the Premier League club he wants a move to Besiktas before the transfer deadline on Thursday.

The Turkish giants have been strongly linked with a move for the French attacker after selling Ryan Babel to Fulham earlier in the window, and recent reports say Besiktas have submitted a loan offer to Tottenham.

According to Takvim, N’Koudou has held talks with Tottenham and told them he wants a transfer to Besiktas in order to get regular first team football.

It’s reported the 23-year old is unhappy with his lack of playing time under Mauricio Pochettino despite being involved in Tottenham’s last two games, including a full ninety minutes against Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Besiktas have also parted ways with Ricardo Quaresma and the Turkish club are now desperately looking for reinforcements in the coming days.

The attacker is contracted to the London club until June 2022.

And on Monday it was claimed the club are hopeful of being able to announce the signing this week.
