Report: Tottenham defender Younes Kaboul linked with Galatasaray move

Younes Kaboul could leave White Hart Lane this summer, with the Tottenham Hotspur stopper linked with a move to Galatasaray this week.

Galatasaray are reportedly keen on bringing Tottenham Hotspur defender Younes Kaboul to Turkey this summer.

Turkish news source Milliyet is claiming that the one-time UEFA Cup winners are looking to recruit the 29-year-old, who is thought to be surplus to requirements at White Hart Lane.

Kaboul would cost the club anywhere between £5 million and £10 million according to various reports, but boasts plenty in the way of experience.

Capped five times by France, the former Portsmouth stopper has played 110 Premier League games for Tottenham to date during two spells with the north London club.

Galatasaray could be hoping that the recruitment of Kaboul can help the club improve it's performance in Europe.

Crowned champions of Turkey for the third time in four years and winners of the Turkish Cup yet again this season, Gala already boast Holland international Wesley Sneijder in their ranks.

But they will be keen to improve on last season's showing in the Champions League, where they were dumped out at the group phase without a single win to their name.

The 2013/14 season had seen them upset the odds to progress to the last-16, following a memorable win over recent finalists Juventus.

Kaboul could yet prove to be the signing that takes Galatasaray to the next level.
