Tottenham have announced the signing of France Under-21 defender Younes Kaboul from Auxerre.

Spurs fought off competition elsewhere in Europe to sign the 21-year-old, who was rated at around £8million.

"Younes possesses power, great pace and is good on the ball and strong in the air," said sporting director Damien Comolli.
