Kaboul: Could return from injury against Everton

Kaboul: Could return from injury against Everton

Younes Kaboul could return to first-team action early next month, but Andre Villas-Boas will be 'careful' with the Tottenham Hotspur defender.

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.

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
