With regards to transfers out of the club, there are two recurring stories today concerning Younes Kaboul and Steven Caulker.

Last week we read that Premier League new boys Swansea were interested in taking Caulker on a season long loan and we argued that it could be a good move for the player, considering that he might have a lot of work on his hands.

Today it has emerged that Norwich have also enquired about a loan deal, something that Harry has confirmed.

“We think Caulker’s got a great future, but I would be happy to loan him out,” said Redknapp.

“I know Swansea want him – but so do Norwich and there are a couple of clubs in there.”

Harry may not be quite so keen on letting go of Younes Kaboul, but a story is gaining momentum with regard to an approach from Marseille who it is said are preparing a £8.5m offer.

The stories point to the player’s limited appearances last season while conveniently forgetting that injury played its part, but they also point to Kaboul’s international position. The centre half has just broken into the French side and they suggest a move closer to home could improve his chances of becoming a regular starter.

Speculation or not, Spurs will surely resist any move from France or anywhere else.



  1. Caulker should be loaned out to a lower Premier League side where he can get a game every week.

    I don’t see Kaboul leaving Spurs. I can certainly understand the appeal for him to play in France but I don’t think it makes a lot of sense for Spurs to sell him for 8.5 million. Now, if they up that to 14 or 15 million, go ahead and sell him, replace him with an equal defender for 9-10 million and use the leftover money to up a bid on a striker.

  2. Caulker was immense in the championship last season and will cope very well with a loan in the premier league. That in turn should set him up to become a Spurs regular in 2012.

    Kaboul is probably too important for Spurs to sell so cheaply. He covers several positions – the club has injury-prone central defenders – and that’s before considering that Spurs probably want one additional CB even if they don’t let Kaboul go.
