​Pochettino: Lack of English a problem for new Tottenham signing Nkoudou

Tottenham midfielder Georges-Kevin Nkoudou is still a week away from being considered for selection, boss Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed.

The 21 year old joined Spurs from Marseille on transfer deadline day, signing a five-year deal at White Hart Lane.

"It is going well. He is very young, he speaks only French, it's a big problem for him," Pochettino told his pre-match new conference.

"He is learning quickly, but he is still settling into the team. He needs to work more.

"I think maybe he will be ready to be selected next week, maybe but not sure," he added.
