Defender will not be allowed to leave White Hart Lane.
Tottenham have rejected a loan bid from Anzhi Makhachkala for Younes Kaboul, reports The Guardian.
The Russian Premier League club are seeking a replacement for centre-half Christopher Samba, who joined QPR for £12m in January.
The France international has not played for Spurs since the opening day of the season after undergoing knee surgery but has recently returned to training.
Kaboul was formidable for the North London outfit this season and could still play a part in the club’s quest to finish in the Premier League top four.
The former Portsmouth man could increase his £35,000 per week wages by joining Anzhi but Spurs are keen to retain his services, with boss Andre Villas-Boas thought to have personally intervened to prevent the Frenchman’s departure.
The Russians, managed by Guus Hiddink, are desperate to sign a replacement for Samba before their transfer closes at midnight Wednesday, after they were powerless to prevent the Congo star moving to Loftus Road after the Hoops met his release clause.
Kaboul’s contract at Tottenham expires in 2014 and he is likely to be offered new terms to remain at the club, where he is enjoying his second spell as a player, once he has proved his fitness.
