Tottenham defender Younes Kaboul has sustained a thigh injury as he strives to get back to first team action.

The French centre-back has been missing since August with a knee problem but returned to the pitch with Spurs U21s last week and again on Monday.

However, he lasted just 48 minutes of this week's match against Manchester United before succumbing to a strained muscle which will force him back to the medical room to continue rehab.
