Younes Kaboul: Tottenham defender could return from injury against Everton

Younes Kaboul: Tottenham defender could return from injury against Everton

France international Kaboul has not played since the opening game of the season against Newcastle United in August after undergoing a knee operation.

He was initially expected to be out for four months, but the 27-year-old's comeback has been delayed several times during his ongoing recovery.

Kaboul is now back in full training and Villas-Boas has suggested the Premier League game against Everton on 7th April could see the centre-half return.

"He has trained the last two days 100 per cent with the team," the Tottenham manager said.

"He is going to rest on Friday and next week he is going to come back and train again with the team.

"If he doesn't feel any pain, it can mean he will be match fit in 10 days if it all goes without interruption - 10-15 days.

"But we have to be careful because it is a very sensitive situation for him."

Kaboul's return would be a welcome boost for Villas-Boas as he looks to hold on to fourth place during a tricky run-in which also includes games against Manchester City, Chelsea, and Saturday's trip to Swansea City.
