Tottenham have been dealt another blow in their search for centre-back cover, after AS Monaco's Aymen Abdennour signed a new contract at the club.

With Vlad Chiriches and Younes Kaboul seemingly set for a summer exit from White Hart Lane, Mauricio Pochettino will be looking to add cover behind Jan Vertonghen, Eric Dier and Federico Fazio. However, despite rumours of a move a fortnight ago, Abdennour will not be joining, after signing a one-year extension to his contract until 2018, according to talkSPORT.

North London rivals

The Tunisian international had spoken about Tottenham's interest in the past but has decided to stay in the Principality as they eye progression in the Champions League against Spurs' bitter north London rivals Arsenal. The French side have a 3-1 lead to defend at the Stade Louis II.

His performances had alerted many sides in Europe, and there was word that Abdennour's participation in the recent African Cup of Nations had upset his parent club, but that would now appear to be far from the truth.


Pochettino may revert back to former charge Hector Moreno, of Espanyol, or look to the successful U18 side that defeated their Chelsea counterparts in the first leg of the FA Youth Cup recently.

Cameron Carter-Vickers was outstanding in that match and given Pochettino's faith in youth it is not inconceivable that the 17-year-old United States youth international is promoted into the first team picture.
