Long-serving winger Aaron Lennon is on the verge of leaving Tottenham in the closing stages of the January transfer window, with Everton confirming he’s en route to Goodison Park.
He’s not the only Spurs star who’s set to be re-housed before 11pm, with talks ongoing regarding teammate Etienne Capoue going out on loan, while there has been ample speculation surrounding the futures of Emmanuel Adebayor and Vlad Chiriches.
While a lack of suitors is likely to scupper the sale of the former, it’s thought that Chiriches or fellow centre-back Younes Kaboul will be sold before the close of play.
It is the Frenchman who represents the 60-inch flat-screen TV equivalent on the Tottenham transfer conveyor belt.
This is why West Ham must be favourites to be the next club to benefit from the Lilywhites’ everything-must-go clearance.
The Hammers are 3/1 to bag the Spurs skipper before deadline day is out.
Kaboul hasn’t featured in the Premier League since his present employers lost 2-1 at home to Stoke, but Sam Allardyce remains keen on him as he makes a late bid to bolster his backline.
They’ve been in hot pursuit of Sylvain Distin, another out-of-favour centre-back all day, but Kaboul, who can boast several similar attributes, has many more factors working in his favour and with Spurs looking to shed the player they won’t be demanding an exorbitant fee, which renders the move a plausible one.
