Spurs man close to £6m exit: A player with potential who Ramos could still need!

Are Spurs about to let this youngster leave for Portsmouth?

Tottenham defender Younes Kaboul is hoping to secure a move to Portsmouth.
Kaboul has fallen out of favour at White Hart Lane and looks set for a summer move away from North London.
The 22-year-old struggled to establish himself at Spurs following his ?7million move from Auxerre last summer and he is believed to be keen on a transfer to get his career back on track.
Kaboul has not linked up with Tottenham at their pre-season training camp in Spain and the player’s agent Rudy Raba says Pompey and Spurs are in talks about a deal for the Frenchman.
“The two clubs are discussing a move and are trying to find an agreement,” Raba told skysports.com.
“Younes wants to go and he would like to join Harry Redknapp.
“He likes him as a manager and he wants to play football on a regular basis.
“We just hope a deal can be agreed between both clubs so Younes can move on.” (Sky Sports)

Tottenham have made some good defensive signings since Juande’s arrival, but they are still short on depth in the centre-back area. Whilst Kaboul looked out of his depth at times, he does have potential and it appears that some fans feel it is worth holding on to the French youngster rather than cashing in on a sale to Portsmouth. With the likes of Rocha, Gardner and Dawson all linked with possible exits, maybe Ramos should try to persuade Younes to stick around and fight for a place in the team?

Obviously the first-choice centre-back pairing of Woody and King would be ahead in the queue but, given the latter’s susceptibility to injury, it would surely be unwise to offload that strength in depth, unless of course JR already has some new targets in this area. Do Spurs fans think that Kaboul has done enough to suggest he has the talent to make it at White Hart Lane?
