A select round-up of the latest news relating to Tottenham Hotspur…
The latest report claims a deal has been agreed for around £6.2million with the 24-year-old moving back to Ligue 1 on a five-year deal.
The report claims that it will now only be a matter of hours until the player completes his mooted move, with the caveat that is of course barring any unforeseen circumstances.
Stambouli only arrived from Tottenham last summer from Montpellier but after rarely featuring in the Premier League it seems his time there is coming to an end.
In other news, former Tottenham player Jermain Defoe has been speaking about Younes Kaboul’s move to Sunderland.
The Frenchman signed for the Black Cats last week and in comments published by the Daily Star, Defoe revealed a conversation he had with his manager Dick Advocaat about Kaboul.
“I told him that, if you can get him, he will be a top signing,” Defoe said.
Kaboul becomes the latest in an increasingly long line of Tottenham departures, which is no surprise when you consider the defensive additions manager Mauricio Pochettino has already brought in this summer.
