It was one of the worst kept secrets when it comes to Tottenham Hotspur transfer rumours this summer, but the club have finally confirmed they have agreed a deal to sell Clinton N'Jie to Marseille this summer.

He managed to score four goals in 22 league appearances for his new club.

The Cameroon global moved to White Hart Lane in 2015, but made only 14 appearances in a spell disrupted by injury.

He appeared for Spurs 14 times, before leaving for the Ligue 1 club on loan last season.

"We have reached an agreement with Marseille for the permanent transfer of Clinton Njie", read a brief statement on Tottenham's website. 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. They are yet to make an official signing this summer.

But Pochettino's side have a wretched record up Wembley Way, since it was re-opened in 2007, with their only wins coming against Chelsea in the 2008 League Cup final and CSKA Moscow in last season's Champions League.
