Younes Kaboul insists there is little chance of him heading for the exits at Tottenham, with the club ready to take on a new challenge.

Younes Kaboul: Has no desire to secure a switch elsewhere

Harry Redknapp's White Hart Lane reign came to an end earlier this summer, paving the way for former Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas to secure a return to English football management.

His arrival has offered a clean slate to all of those on Spurs' books, and the squad are looking forward to making a fresh start.

Kaboul intends to form part of those plans, as he is tied to a long-term contract.

Reports had suggested that he could be among those looking to move on following Spurs' failure to qualify for the UEFA Champions League.

The France international claims to feel settled in his current surroundings, though, and admits he would be very surprised if a transfer was put in place.

"Could missing out on the Champions League see me move? It would be very difficult for me to do so," Kaboul told L'Equipe.

"I have four years remaining on my contract at Tottenham and, more importantly, I am happy here, and in England.

"There is a new challenge here and a new coach who has been working very well.

"He has his views on how he wants us to play and considering the players we have here, I am sure it will work."

Kaboul has also revealed that he has spoken to reported Tottenham target Hugo Lloris about a move to England.

On the Lyon goalkeeper, he added: "I have had a phone call with Hugo Lloris. We talked about Tottenham.

"He will make his choice. He deserves to be playing in a great league."
