Tottenham Hotspur confirmed on Tuesday that Georges-Kevin Nkoudou had joined Burnley for the rest of the season on a loan deal and some of the fans could not be happier for the player.

The former France Under-21 international arrived at White Hart Lane during the summer transfer window in 2016 from Marseille but has found his playing opportunities limited.

The Tottenham winger has only been able to make six appearances for Mauricio Pochettino’s side so far this season, scoring once in the process, after featuring 17 times during his debut year.

Having to compete with a place against the likes of Christian Eriksen, Erik Lamela and Moussa Sissoko during their domestic cup run, he is not thought to be considered in the manager’s immediate plans, which means Nkoudou has been given the opportunity to play at the same level with Burnley and has welcomed the move himself.

The Clarets have been involved with an extraordinary campaign in the Premier League so far, with Sean Dyche’s men sitting seventh in the table, and this signing shows their intention to continue to push on with the remainder of the season in the same vein.

Tottenham fans have taken to social media to leave their thoughts about the 22-year-old’s temporary switch, stating their belief that it will only benefit the player, which in turn will strengthen their side when he returns.

Spurs supporters were quick to offer encouragement to Nkoudou and were giving their best wishes for the young Frenchman, waiting to see what he can do with his opportunity at Turf Moor.

Here are some of the best reactions from the Tottenham faithful on Twitter:
