The France Under-21 worldwide has made just six appearances for Spurs this campaign, only playing once in the Premier League. Burnley are in need of options out wide having lost Robbie Brady to a knee injury for the rest of the season.

Since Lauer did occupy Today coanchor chair for over two decades, seniority could be a factor here, but it's frankly unacceptable that Kotb's salary comes nowhere within spitting distance of Lauer's exorbitant salary. And this is despite getting a raise from her old gig, where she co-hosted the "Today" show's fourth hour with Kathie Lee Gifford at 10 a.m. since 2008.

Hoda Kotb has been named Today co-anchor, joining Savannah Guthrie, the NBC morning show unveiled Tuesday (Jan. 2).

"I'm not making Matt Lauer money", Kotb told People. Certain texts popped up, and there was one from Matt: "'Congratulations!'" Kotb told E!

Lauer, 59, said in his statement that some of the accusations against him were "untrue or mischaracterized" but that "there is enough truth in these stories to make me feel embarrassed and ashamed".
