Spurs defender off to Greece


Tottenham defender Bongani Khumalo is set to join Greek side PAOK Thessaloniki on a season-long loan deal.

The central defender has failed to break into the Spurs first-team and considering that we have lost two defenders in Ledley King and Ryan Nelsen, it looks as if Khumalo doesn’t really have what it takes to become a first-choice defender for us.

He has previously had loan spells at Reading and Preston and will now ply his trade in Greece as he looks to get regular football once again.

“The clubs have agreed and the player and myself will be travelling to Greece this week with a view to agreeing and finalising the player’s personal terms for the loan deal,” his agent Glyn Binkin told KickOff.com.

Khumalo joined from Supersport United for a fee in the region of £1.5 million in January 2011.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Vertonghen, Dawson, Cauluka and Kaboul, spurs already have a set 4 to cover our centre backs roll. We need a new left back though as Ekotto is so slow at thinking/passing.

    Hopefully a new right winger and world class forward are on their way to.

    • Benny is quality, he's got us out of many a sticky situation! He's up there in the top 3 left backs in the league

    • vertonghen hasnt signed yet and Corluka has left, unless you meant Caulker?
      dawson is extremely injury prone as is Gallas, so that only leaves Caulker n Kab.
      we need 2 more, hopefuly vertonghen +1 – must have them lined up though or this would never go through

      • Caulker, Kaboul, Dawson, King, Gallas with vertonghen coming in seem like plenty to me. It's true Dawson has been unlucky with injury in the last year or, but to call him 'extremely injury prone' is a bit of an exaggeration. How many centre backs do you want? Besides Hudd is more than capable of filling in there on the odd occasion. Can't wait for the season to start! Come on you spurs!!!
