Tottenham reportedly reject Anzhi bid for Younes Kaboul

Younes Kaboul - Pete Norton

The Guardian reports offer made for Spurs' injured CB

Tottenham Hotspur reportedly received – and rejected – a bid for CB Younes Kaboul from Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala according to a report in The Guardian, posted today.

The report, which doesn't contain any quotes or proof whatsoever, claims that the oil-rich Dagestan club is targeting Kaboul as a replacement for Christopher Samba, who left this January for Harry Redknapp and QPR. There are also no indications to the amount of the bid.

Quite honestly, this article could be 100% bogus, or there could be some truth – we don't know. Younes Kaboul was the rock at the heart of Spurs' back line last season and was quite clearly Tottenham's best defender. He's also been out since August recovering from a knee injury, but is now training for the club and may be up for selection in the next few games. Today is the final day of the Russian Premier League's transfer window, so it would also not be surprising to see some Russian clubs come in for a few cheeky last minute bids for European players.

Whether or not this article is true, Younes "Kaboom" doesn't appear to be going anywhere, at least for now.
