Younes Kaboul sends message to Tottenham fans on Twitter

Younes Kaboul has left Tottenham Hotspur for Sunderland.

Younes Kaboul has clinched his move from Tottenham Hotspur to Sunderland.

The club announced the deal on their official website, signing the 29-year-old centre-back on a four-year contract.

The Frenchman had two separate spells at Spurs, joining Portsmouth in between, and left as captain of the club.

Despite his last three seasons being derailed by injury, he remained a largely popular figure, even if it was widely acknowledged it was best for both parties to move on.

Kaboul is rarely active on social media, in fact before the deal was announced, his last tweet came more than 440 days ago.

He sent a message out to Spurs fans to say thank you for their support during his time at the club.

Kaboul also put together a photo collage of a few memorable times with the club, posting a message of good luck to his now former Spurs teammates.

Kaboul could get a quick reunion with Spurs. Sunderland host them at The Stadium of Light on September 13th, a game being televised. He will return to White Hart Lane on January 16th.
