Younes Kaboul
Kaboul has made just six Premier League starts this season.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Younes Kaboul has rubbished suggestions he will join Arsenal in the summer when his contract expires at White Hart Lane.

Kaboul is yet to agree a contract extension with Spurs, for whom he has started just seven Premier League matches during the past two seasons amid constant injury troubles.

With Tottenham having conceded 17 goals in the six league games since Kaboul's return to the starting eleven, the club are expected to part ways with the 28 year old who produced another uncertain display in the 4-0 weekend loss to Liverpool.

And reports had suggested that Kaboul would be willing to become the latest player to cross north London and risk a backlash from supporters by joining Arsenal from Tottenham.

But Kaboul has responded on Twitter, saying: "I can confirm 100% that the rumour about me joining Arsenal is not true!!!"

Former England captain Sol Campbell was the last player to swap White Hart Lane for the red half of north London and is among eight players to have made the switch.

Seven players have represented Arsenal before moving to Tottenham, with David Bentley, William Gallas and Emmanuel Adebayor among the recent examples of players crossing the divide of one of English football's most hotly contested rivalries.

Few positives have emerged from Spurs' latest defeat of Tim Sherwood's reign in charge to Liverpool, with the club's hopes of finishing in the top four diminishing by the week.

After missing the defeat to Liverpool, Emmanuel Adebayor has handed the club a welcomed boost after returning to first-team training after respective hamstring and heel problems and is in contention to play against Sunderland next Monday.

"It's great to see him back out there," said Sherwood. "We'll continue to assess him as the week progresses and hopefully he'll then be back in contention against Sunderland.

"He's obviously been a big miss. He's been outstanding for us."
