Tottenham Hotspur fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern may be happy about the fact Michael Dawson is set to stay at the club but there is a bit of bad news bubbling under the surface courtesy of The Independent who claim Younes Kaboul may be heading for the exit door.
It has been claimed that in the Russians search for the next Chris Samba, mega rich Anzhi Makhachkala are after French international Kaboul on an initial loan ahead of the start of the domestic season next month. The Dagestan-based club saw Samba depart in the January transfer window to Queens Park Rangers for the sum of £12.5 million and are now on the look out for a new centre half. The club would be willing to offer Kaboul at least the wages he is currently on at Spurs which are £35,000-a-week should he move on a permanent transfer and would be willing to fund part of his wages should he arrive on loan.
All of this seems increasingly unlikely for the club as Andre Villas-Boas is set on keeping his squad together with everyone needed for not only the top four race but also the push in the Europa League. In further developments as reported by The Guardian today, the Lilywhites have actually rebuffed the Russians initial attempts at landing the Frenchman.
Spurs face bitter rivals Arsenal on Sunday in the North London derby and should they edge past the Gunners, they would be even more certain about the prospect of finishing in the highly coveted European qualification places.
Will Kaboul be attracted to a spell in the Russian Premier League? Rate this rumour below.
