Tottenham Announce Departure of Winger Clinton N'Jie to Ligue 1 Side Marseille


Ligue 1 side Marseille have signed Tottenham winger Clinton N’Jie on a permanent deal.

The 23-year-old joined Spurs from Lyon in 2015 after scoring eight goals in 43 appearances for Les Gones but his only season in north London was wrecked by injury, making just 14 appearances in all competitions and failing to score a goal.

Spurs announced the news via their ​website, wishing the Cameroon international all the best for his career.

The statement reads: “We have reached agreement with Marseille for the permanent transfer of Clinton Njie.

“The Cameroon international spent the 2016-17 campaign on loan with the Ligue 1 side, making 23 appearances and scoring four goals.

“Clinton joined us in August, 2015, from Lyon and made 14 appearances for the Club.


“We wish Clinton all the best for the future.”

N’Jie spent the 2016-17 season on loan at Marseille, scoring four goals in 19 Ligue 1 appearances as Les Olympiens finished fifth in the league.

Tottenham have now sold four first-team players, with N’Jie joining the likes of Nabil Bentaleb, Federico Fazio and Kyle Walker in leaving the north London side this summer.

However, Spurs are still yet to make a transfer signing this summer, despite all their Premier League rivals being heavily active in the window so far.

Liverpool have signed Mohamed Salah, while Chelsea have secured transfers for Germany defender Antonio Rudiger and former Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.

Arsenal have secured Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette, City have obtained Bernardo Silva, Ederson and Kyle Walker, while United have splashed out on Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku.
