Tottenham are due six years worth of training compensation for Griffiths, who scored 33 goals for the club’s U18 side last season.

He scored four hat-tricks among that haul, including a pair against North London rivals Arsenal.

Griffiths attracted interest from other major clubs in Europe, but has opted to make France his home.

He becomes another high-profile youngster to leave England, some 12 months after Jadon Sancho quit Manchester City to join Borussia Dortmund.

Sancho left City in a similar search for first-team football and made 12 appearances for the Bundesliga side in his first overseas campaign.
