Tottenham winger Georges-Kevin Nkoudou is set to join Burnley on loan until the end of the season.

Nkoudou has not made a single Premier League start under Mauricio Pochettino this term, with Spurs understood to believe a move will offer the 22-year-old valuable first-team experience.

There is no option for Burnley to buy the player included in the deal. Nkoudou could make his debut against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Sean Dyche has instilled a disciplined defensive unit at Burnley, with a high-intensity work ethic, qualities Tottenham will hope rub off on Nkoudou, who is yet to show some of the grittier attributes Pochettino demands.

Instead, Nkoudou's opportunities have largely been restricted to domestic cups and appearances off the bench since he joined Spurs from Marseille in August 2016.

The Frenchman capped an encouraging display with a goal against Apoel Nicosia in the Champions League last month but the tie was a dead rubber as his side had already secured first place in the group.

Erik Lamela's return from injury had also pushed Nkoudou even further down the pecking order.

Tottenham are expected to bring Lamela into their 25-man squad for the Champions League knock-out stages next month and - given their allocation for non-homegrown players was full - Nkoudou was the player most likely to make way.
