Like Federico Fazio yesterday, Clinton N’Jie became the latest confirmed exit from Tottenham Hotspur this morning after the club tweeted that he has sealed his permanent transfer to Marseille.
N’Jie spent all of last year on loan at Marseille with the Ligue 1 club also having an option to purchase him outright for £6m at the end of last season. While Clinton was included on the list of Spurs players retained after the drop/release date, we all suspected that Clinton was extremely unlikely to return to north London.
In fact, we even spotted Clinton in OM training photos and videos, so we wondered whether the deal was done but just not announced. Turns out, we were right.
I think most Spurs fans would agree that the Cameroonian forward never really got much of a chance at Spurs during his one year at the club, but hopefully he’ll be able to establish himself again in France. Good luck, Clinton.
