Bad news came out of Spurs Lodge today with the confirmation that Younes Kaboul will be out of the Tottenham side for around four months after knee surgery. The French international pulled out of the game with West Brom at the weekend but the extent of the damage will come as a real blow.
“Morning all, surgery done with success. Now looking forward for my rehab. I thank you all for your great support as usual! #comingbackstronger,” Younes said on his Twitter feed today before adding,
“Sorry I forgot to mention how long … Should be 4 months.”
This will be seen by most Spurs supporters as extremely bad news but it should end any speculation concerning the future of Michael Dawson. Unless AVB has another defender lined up on deadline day it seems more than likely that Daws will find an opportunity shortly to prove that he still has a future at the Lane.
