Moroccan officials are hoping to persuade Younes Kaboul to switch allegiance and play for their national team.

The £8million Tottenham defender was born in the French Alps and is currently captain of the French Under 21s.

Family origins

However, according to France Football, Moroccan officials want the 21-year-old defender to become a Moroccan international due to his family origins.

And the Moroccan FA are even hoping the former Auxerre player will receive clearance in time to play France in a friendly next week.
