Tottenham boss Martin Jol saw enough of Younes Kaboul in their opening day defeat at Sunderland to convince him he'd made a great signing.

Jol said: "Kaboul has proved to me he is a quality player and it is certainly a wake-up call for him because he proved he can play well at the back and it doesn't mean anything.

"We have got to prepare him. We've warned him what to expect and until now he is doing well. He is strong, quick and good in the air. He is a very good asset and I feel there will be no problem with him."
