Younes Kaboul has ruled out the possibility of joining Juventus in January after reports linked him with a move to the current Serie A league leaders emerged this week.

Kaboul has been in outstanding form this season at the heart of defence alongside Ledley King, helping Spurs up to third in the Barclays Premier League on the back of a ten game unbeaten streak, with the Frenchman’s performances seemingly catching the eye of Juventus boss Antonio Conte.

Despite being linked with a move to Italy previously, Kaboul insists he has no plans to leave White Hart Lane any time soon.

"I am fine here with Tottenham. The manager trusts me and likes me to play for him. I am very well and settled here, the former Portsmouth man said.

"Juventus is a great club and attractive. But, to be honest, I like it here at Spurs, so I am here and we are trying to fight until the end of the season to be challenging for the title and also for the Champions League positions.”

"Hopefully we will achieve that because this league is a tough league, he added.

Kaboul may find his place in the Spurs starting side under pressure in the coming weeks with the impending return of Michael Dawson, while a host of defenders continue to be linked with a move to White Hart Lane ahead of the transfer window opening next month, with Bolton’s Gary Cahill and Ajax’s Jan Vertonghen both rumoured to be ready for a switch to north London.
