Tottenham seal £6m deal: Has Juande done the right thing?

As Spurs continue to add more quality signings to the club, it appears one youngster is heading for a White Hart Lane exit to Portsmouth.

Discover the country’s best unknown player.

Portsmouth have struck a deal for Tottenham defender Younes Kaboul. The deal will be some consolation for the FA Cup winners following the FA Community Shield penalty shoot-out defeat to Manchester United.
Kaboul, 22, will sign subject to passing a medical at Fratton Park on Monday, with the fee thought to be around £6million for a player who recently turned down Sunderland and was also linked with Aston Villa.
Coach Joe Jordan said: “Kaboul should help. He’s a been a long-term target of the manager. He’s only 22 and is coming to a good place to learn, with Sol Campbell and Sylvain Distin.” (

This does seem like a good deal all around. Kaboul goes to the south coast club who are clearly on the up and under excellent leadership in the form of Harry Redknapp. Spurs get a decent chunk of cash for a player who looked like he had good potential, but was unlikely to secure a run of first-team action. The Frenchman will definitely learn from Messrs Campbell and Distin and will be looking to push both veterans hard for a starting spot at Portsmouth this coming season. Who should Ramos bring in to give his defence strength in depth?
