Report: Watford interested in Tottenham Hotspur’s Younes Kaboul

Newly-promoted Premier League outfit Watford want to sign Tottenham Hotspur defender Younes Kaboul in the summer transfer window.

Watford are interested in signing Younes Kaboul from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window, according to The Sun.

According to the British tabloid, the defender is rated at £4 million by Spurs and is keen to remain in the Premier League.

Kaboul has been on the books of the North London outfit since 2010, but he has fallen down the pecking order and looks set to leave White Hart Lane at the end of the season.

The 29-year-old French centre-back’s current contract with Tottenham runs out in June 2016, according to

Good move?

Kaboul has been able to make only 11 appearances in the Premier League this season, and it does not look like he has a future at Tottenham.

The Frenchman, though, is a defender whose experience will be important for a club like Watford, who will be looking to stave off relegation from the Premier League.

The Hornets have gained automatic promotion to the English top flight for the 2015-16 campaign, and they will be expected to fight for survival.

Since Kaboul reportedly wants to remain in the Premier League, it would not be a bad move for him if he joins Watford, where he is likely to get more playing time than he currently gets at Spurs.
