Spurs to sell one star for £5m and bring one in for £8m, but does it make sense?

Younes Kaboul hasn’t exactly shone at White Hart Lane but I was surprised to hear the news today that Juande Ramos wants to sell a player who does have some potential. Good news for Spurs fans, though, is that JR has a replacement already lined up!

Middlesbrough defender David Wheater has emerged as a potential target for Ramos as he seeks to solidify his leaky defence (various)

The Boro centre-back looks like a hot prospect and one that Liverpool are also actively chasing. I do think, though, that Kaboul should be kept as he has shown glimpses of quality in an otherwise problematic first season. There are certainly a number of players who should be ahead of him in the queue to be offloaded by Ramos.
