There was little chance of Georges-Kévin N'Koudou staying with Olympique Marseille this season.
The French winger left OM last month for Tottenham, having spent over a fortnight in London as he waited for the two clubs to agree terms.
L'Equipe says N'Koudou was desperate to leave OM after falling out with coach Franck Passi.
"If he stays next season, I'm leaving," it's claimed he told teammates at Marseille as he considered his options.
And it's claimed the pair haven't spoken since the winger left for Spurs.
