Tottenham Hotspur morning news: Kaboul on his future, talks over French legend

White Hart Lane 5

A round up of morning news stories about Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham Hotspur captain Younes Kaboul has dismissed the idea he could leave the club.

Kaboul has previously been linked with high profile moves away from Spurs.

“I still have a contract until June 2016 with the Spurs, I'm very happy,” he told talkSPORT.

Former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has revealed Patrick Vieira nearly joined Spurs.

Redknapp held conversations with chairman Daniel Levy over the possibility of signing the Frenchman.

“I remember talking to Daniel Levy, our chairman, about him. He said the crowd would be hostile. I knew that - but if he had enough bottle to want to put on our white shirt after all that had gone before, I thought it said something about the man,” he said.

Spurs left-back Ben Davies says he hopes he can use the international platform with Wales to force his way into Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

Davies has struggled to dislodge Danny Rose at left-back since he arrived from Swansea over the summer.

“I am constantly working as hard as I can to make that left-back spot at Tottenham my own. I did that at Swansea when Neil Taylor came back after injury and I have to do it again now,” said the Welshman.
