thumbnail Hello,

A move to White Hart Lane has been touted for some weeks, and the France international has admitted to talking over the opportunity with the 25-year-old goalkeeper

Younes Kaboul has revealed that Lyon goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has discussed a possible move to Tottenham with the defender.

In a move that has been touted for some time, Spurs are thought to be keen to invest in the relatively young shotstopper with current first choice Brad Friedel recently turning 41.

Lyon have stated their desire to keep Lloris at Stade de Gerland, but Kaboul is hopeful that a deal can be completed.

"I talked about Tottenham with Lloris on the telephone,” Kaboul told L’Equipe. “It will be great for him to play with us."

And the centre-back, who established himself as first choice at White Hart Lane last season, has dismissed any notion of him leaving White Hart Lane.

He added: "It will be difficult for me to move. I am happy in Tottenham."

However, it is not as plain sailing on the international front. Despite an impressive season with Spurs, Kaboul failed to make Laurent Blanc’s squad heading to Euro 2012.

And the 26-year-old is determined to force his way into new head coach Didier Deschamps' plans for the future with World Cup 2014 looming in the distance.

"I was very sad to not be included the in squad for the Euros because I had a good season with Tottenham,” he continued.

"I can’t lose time. I must play. I don't want watch the World Cup 2014 on TV.”
