Younes Kaboul denies Arsenal transfer rumours

Tottenham defender Younes Kaboul has denied he will cross the north London divide and join Arsenal in the summer.

Reports this morning suggested that the Frenchman could be about to follow in the footsteps of Sol Campbell and swap Spurs for Arsenal when his contract expires at the end of the season.

However Kaboul, who re-joined Tottenham from Portsmouth in 2010, insists there is no truth to the rumours.

He wrote on Twitter:  "Can confirm 100% that the rumour about me joining Arsenal is not true!!! #coys"

While he may not be joining Arsenal, Kaboul faces an uncertain future with his contract soon to expire and no new deal forthcoming as yet.

The 28-year-old has spent the majority of the past two seasons sidelined through injury - he's made just nine Premier League appearances since 2012.

Earlier today, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy confirmed there won't be wholesale changes made to the first team squad at the end of the current campaign.

Spurs spent over £100 million on seven new arrivals last year, however they are no closer to Champions League qualification.

In a statement announcing Tottenham's financial results for the past year, Levy said: "This season, we have had to make significant changes, both in respect of coaching and playing staff and yet we are currently only two points less than last season's tally.

Whilst this season's performances and results have not lived up to expectation, we believe our squad has potential and it is important that we all now show commitment and teamwork to get the best possible finish to the season."

Arsenal don't appear short of options at the back but could be in the market for a defender in the summer, with Swansea's Ashley Williams regularly linked with a move to the Gunners in recent seasons.
