Younes Kaboul could still be set to join Portsmouth after his agent revealed the Frenchman has turned down Sunderland.
The Tottenham centre-back looked set for a move north to join former team-mates Teemu Tainio and Pascal Chimbonda who have already signed up for Roy Keane´s side, with Steed Malbranque poised to follow them after a medical.
But Kaboul´s agent Rudy Raba has confirmed that his client would prefer a move south and he told the Portsmouth News: "He wants to go to Portsmouth. He would prefer to go there."
