Amidst reports that he is seeking a transfer away from White Hart Lane following Tottenham’s failure to qualify for the Champions League next season, French defender Younes Kaboul has spoken out about his desire to stay in North London.
Kaboul still has 4 years left on his current contract and insists that he is happy to stay with Spurs, stating in L’Equipe: “Could missing out on the Champions League see me move? It would be very difficult for me to do so.”
Kaboul also talked of his excitement at working under new manager Andre Villas-Boas, adding: “There is a new challenge here and a new coach who has been working very well… He has his views on how he wants us to play and considering the players we have here, I am sure it will work.”
This statement of loyalty will be welcomed by Spurs fans after a string of solid and impressive performances in the heart of the Tottenham defence last season saw the French international become one of the squad’s most consistent performers.
Kaboul, along with fit again Michael Dawson and new signing Jan Vertonghen, will make up a Tottenham centre defence with strong competition for places.
