Marseille activate £5.98m N'jie purchase


According to French daily newspaper L'Equipe, Ligue 1 side Marseille have activated their €7 million clause to permanently sign Clinton N'jie from Spurs. He officially joins them at the end of the season, July 1, his loan spell ends 30 June.

Tottenham loaned Clinton N'jie to Marseille for a season and Georges-Kevin M'Koudou cam the other way last summer. It would appear now that Marseille are signing him permanently for £5.98 million (€7m - AUS$9.85m - US$7.46m).

His coach at Marseille Rudi Garcia said after their game this week that N'jie was useful to the squad.

"He’s [N'jie] very useful. We’re using his speed, he holds the ball a little higher to bring out the midfield. He is more than interesting.”

The Cameroon international who won the 2017 African Cup of Nations although the 23-year-old (24 in August) didn't play in the final didn't sufficiently impress in training to get much time on the pitch. He has had 4 goals and 1 assist in 19 French league games covering 932 minutes, equivalent to just over 10 full games.
