Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas is waiting on the return to fitness of Younes Kaboul.
AVB told France Football he regards the French defender highly.
"Younes was injured, but he gets better. We should review things in February. He is a good guy, one of the players with whom I speak often to in my office. We exchange a lot of views about the team, our feelings about the group," he said.
