Besiktas are reportedly planning a summer swoop for Tottenham defender Younes Kaboul, whose White Hart Lane contract expires at the end of the season.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Younes Kaboul is reported to be a target of Turkish giants Besiktas.

The Frenchman is fighting to earn a new contract at White Hart Lane after a succession of injuries has restricted him to seven Premier League appearance since August 2012.

His current deal expires at the end of the season, and with uncertainty over the Spurs managerial hotseat, it is unclear as to whether Kaboul will be kept on or will make way for a new summer arrival.

Should he leave Tottenham, where he has had two spells, having departed to sign for Portsmouth in 2008 before rejoining in 2010, The Mirror claims that Besiktas will offer him a move to the Turkish Super Lig.

The Istanbul outfit are in the market for a high-profile centre-back, but missed out on departing Manchester United skipper Nemanja Vidic, who will join Inter Milan in the summer.

Tottenham Hotspur winger Aaron Lennon caused controversy when he was snapped puffing on a cigar hours after England's 4-1 humilation at the hands of Germany at the 2010 World Cup.
