Younes Kaboul Fit and Available for Selection for Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur defender Younes Kaboul has been pronounced fit by the Tottenham medical staff and should be available to play against Stoke City on Saturday. Kaboul has been out since January with knee and thigh injuries.

Given the knock that Vedran Corluka sustained on Tuesday in Madrid Kaboul may very well be the teams only healthy rightback. William Gallas also can provide cover at the position, but he is much preferred in central defense to Sebastien Bassong.

In other injury news, Steven Pienaar is set to miss the tie this weekend with a groin problem. Niko Kranjcar, Aaron Lennon and the aforementioned Corluka are all likewise struggling for fitness and their participation at the weekend looks in doubt.

Kaboul's return could not have come at a better time for Spurs as they get set to face Stoke City. Stoke are a team with excellent height and are always a danger from set-pieces. Kaboul's size and strength would be a huge asset to the team if he is indeed fit enough to play 90 minutes. Additionally, at the end of last season Kaboul looked like our best option at rightback. He made some excellent runs and his ability in the air was huge for the club on setpieces.

Hopefully Kaboul can replicate his late-season form from last year and help Spurs make a final push for fourth place.
