Instead, Nkoudou's opportunities have largely been restricted to domestic cups and appearances off the bench since he joined Spurs from Marseille in August 2016.
The BBC report that the 22-year-old will spend the rest of the season at Tottenham's Premier League rivals - now in seventh place, just two spots behind Spurs.
This season, he has one minute of Premier League match time this season although he has featured in the Champions League, scoring in the 3 - 0 victory over APOEL.More news: England coach Trevor Bayliss to leave when contract expires after 2019 Ashes

N'Koudou's departure to Burnley is not likely to signal the end of his Tottenham career, with reports in France stating that Pochettino and chairman Daniel Levy are hopeful the player can improve further and want him to return to the club at the end of the campaign.
Burnley have been brilliant under Sean Dyche this season, and Nkoudou will be hoping to play regularly at Turf Moor for the rest of the season.
Kieran Trippier "sold" Burnley to N'Koudou, telling the French youngster "good things about this club, about the players and everything about Burnley".
"I watched the last game against Liverpool when they played very well and were unlucky".
"I am ready to play and waiting on the starting blocks". Loaning Nkoudou allows for Spurs to register Erik Lamela for the Champions League, ensuring the Argentinian is available for the pivotal round-of-16 tie against Juventus.
