When you look at the current crop of transfer rumours involving possible new players at White Hart Lane, a lot of these stories look to try and find the natural successor to Ledley King.
Throughout the summer, various names have been mentioned and those links continue even though the window is closed but could we have found the answer from within our own ranks?
Younes Kaboul draws some differing opinions from Spurs fans, but then again, so does everyone else in the squad. However, it seems that we came closer than we realised to losing the player in the summer after an approach from big spending PSG.
“I could have joined PSG in the summer but preferred the stability of Tottenham,” Younes revealed.
“I am a PSG fan and I watch the matches on TV.
“I adored the club as a kid and I hope they reach the Champions League next season.”
Some observers have suggested that while Kaboul has been inconsistent at times, he seems to thrive while playing alongside our club captain. As for Ledley King himself, he declared last week that he wants to carry on at Spurs when his contract expires at the end of the season but when the time finally comes to call it a day, is Kaboul ready to step into those sizeable boots?
