Tottenham’s attacker plans impacted as Everton deal agreed

Former long-serving Tottenham Hotspur winger Aaron Lennon appears to be on the move, with BBC Sport suggesting that Everton have agreed a deal to sell the 30-year-old to Burnley.

The flying attacker was much-admired and appreciated by the Spurs fans and after recent high-profile mental health issues, the Lilywhites faithful will wish their former charge the best of luck in his new venture.

However, Lennon’s move to Burnley has the potential to put a spanner in the works of Tottenham’s plans for attacker Georges-Kevin Nkoudou.

The French winger has been starved of first-team action since moving to Spurs from Marseille and has been farmed out on loan to the Turf Moor club for the remainder of this season.

Tottenham’s Nkoudou made a positive initial impression at Burnley, coming off the bench in the Clarets’ 1-0 defeat to Crystal Palace last weekend and making some positive contributions for Sean Dyche’s men.

After the 30-minute cameo, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino would surely have been hoping that the winger could be in contention to command a starting role in the Turf Moor side for the rest of the season.

However, Lennon’s potential arrival gives Sean Dyche an extra attacking option to call on – despite the fact that Tottenham’s current winger and their former one usually operate on different sides of the pitch.

Spurs have recalled and re-loaned out Cameron Carter-Vickers after the defender’s opportunities at Sheffield United dried up, with the United States international moving to Ipswich Town in a bid to play more regularly.

In the case of Nkoudou, Tottenham will be hoping that he is given a consistent chance to feature in the Premier League, despite Lennon’s pending arrival, or the deal will have been pointless for the North London club.
