Younes Kaboul has not travelled with Tottenham for their Europa League showdown against Basel tomorrow.

The defender got his first taste of football since August when he turned out for Tottenham's U-21 side against West Ham on Monday.

Kabul underwent surgery on a knee injury in August and is only now nearing a return to action - but tomorrow's game in Switzerland comes a little too soon.

Spurs expect the defender to be in contention for their next Premier League fixture - against Manchester City on April 21.

Injury has robbed Spurs of a number of key performance for the game, which they must win to progress.

Talisman Gareth Bale misses out with an ankle injury, while Aaron Lennon, Jermain Defoe and William Gallas are also absent.

To counter those absentees, boss Andre Villas-Boas has included a host of youngsters in his squad, with Shaquile Coulthirst, Cristian Ceballos and Milos Veljkovic all travelling with the first-team squad.
