Kaboul signed a four-year contract with Sunderland on Thursday after transferring from Tottenham.

Kaboul found consistent playing time hard to come by last season, appearing in only 11 games, as Jan Vertonghen was usually partnered by Eric Dier. Kaboul will certainly have more first-team chances at Sunderland, though the clean-sheet upside isn't as high.

Kaboul picked up an early red card in the 25th minute in the 0-2 loss to West Ham on Saturday.

Kaboul had a red card in March rescinded, but this challenge was far more severe. The suspension will likely be upheld pending an appeal, which means Kaboul's season is over. With speculation over him moving in the summer transfer window and the depth of Spurs' defense, it looks likely Kaboul is on his way out of Tottenham.

Kaboul will be available to face Arsenal on Sunday after the red card suspension he received against Chelsea was rescinded, reports the Daily Mail.

Kaboul was facing a three-match ban, but successfully appealed the suspension earlier in the week.

Tottenham appealed the red card shown to Kaboul on Saturday for fouling Samuel Eto'o in the box, reports the Daily Mail.

The dismissal would normally carry a three-match ban, but Tottenham's appeal could potentially reduce that suspension.

Kaboul picked up a straight red card in the 4-0 loss to Chelsea on Saturday.

Kaboul made little contribution in his return from injury, as he picked up the match-deciding red card early in the second half. It seemed as Tottenham were playing overly aggressive, as they picked up four cards on the evening. Kaboul will miss the next three matches, pending appeal.

Kaboul is available off the bench for Saturday's Premier League match against Hull City.

Kaboul has been bothered by a hip injury for much of the last month, but he's at least returned to a fitness standpoint that will allow him to make an appearance Saturday. Without a start, the potential for clean sheet points all but goes out the window.

Kaboul (hip) is unlikely to play in Wednesday's Premier League match against Manchester City, the Daily Mirror reports.

There were indications that Kaboul was going to be ready to return for Spurs for Wednesday's match, but it appears his hip is still not up to par. He'll try to make his return this Saturday against Hull City.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Kaboul (hip) has returned to training and is targeting a return to match action January 29 against Manchester City, the Tottenham Journal reports.

Kaboul has made only three Premier League appearances this season for Spurs, and was last available December 1 against Manchester United. Tottenham have been hit by a flurry of injuries this season, but Kaboul is slowly making his way back to recovery. Nevertheless, there are better fantasy options in the back four even when he is fit.
