After much talk about the future of Lions’ attacker, Clinton Njie, whether he will stay at his current club, Olympic Marseille on loan or moving back to Tottenham Hotspur, the Premier League club announced on Sunday, July 16 on its official Twitter account that it has reached an agreement with Olympic Marseille to retain the forward. It implies Clinton Njie is now a fulltime employee at the French side.
The Cameroon international who has in recent time fallen short of expectation in the eyes of Indomitable Lions head trainer, Hugo Broos, netted four times on loan with Olympic Marseille last season. A performance that motivated Hugo Broos to leave him out of his squad at the 2017 Confederations Cup that rounded off in early July.
This will be the third club the Small Soppo native is joining in Europe after leaving Olympic Lyonnais to Tottenham Hotspurs in 2015. The attacker’s stay at White Hartlane was brief and later sent to Olympic Marseille. It is expected the 23-year-old will concentrate on the game to regain his position in the Lions’ den.
