Spurs announce Kaboul signing

Tottenham have announced the signing of France Under-21 defender Younes Kaboul from Auxerre.

Spurs fought off competition from around Europe to sign the 21-year-old, who was rated at around £8million.

The signing takes the club's expenditure to over £30million following the arrivals of Gareth Bale and Darren Bent at White Hart Lane so far this summer.

"Younes possesses power, great pace and is good on the ball and strong in the air," said sporting director Damien Comolli.

"He is a good leader who showed a great desire to come to us despite interest and offers from numerous other clubs."
