AFSTZ: Assou-Ekotto to join Saint-Etienne
Benoit Assou-Ekotto is set to join Ligue 1 side Saint-Etienne after being released by Tottenham in February.
The 31-year-old didn’t make an appearance for Spurs this season, having spent the previous campaign on loan at Queens Park Rangers.
Cameroon international, Assou-Ekotto is now set to join the Greens after impressing the club with his fitness levels.
Turkish Super Lig sides Fenerbahce and Galatasaray were thought to be interested in the defender, but look to have missed out on his services.
Having offloaded Assou-Ekotto during the 2014/15 campaign, they are also looking to offload another African in Emmanuel Adebayor, this summer.
