Jol: Spurs have become attractive proposition

Tottenham boss Martin Jol believes the progress of the past three years means the club can now attract the finest available young talent to White Hart Lane.

Gareth Bale and Younes Kaboul have made impressive starts to their Premier League careers despite Spurs' dismal start to the season which sees them in the bottom three ahead of Monday's clash against Aston Villa.

Spurs recruited young players in the summer and Darren Bent is off the mark already, while Kevin-Prince Boateng and Adel Taarabt are pushing for a run of games.

Each signing saw Spurs beat other clubs to secure their youngster, with Taarabt attracting attention while on loan last season.

'Adel was very attractive to a lot of other clubs in Europe, Bent in England, Bale, (Dimitar) Berbatov, Boateng,' Jol said. 'I can mention five or six players.

'I feel it is more a matter of examples. If they see Tom Huddlestone, Aaron Lennon and Michael Dawson playing. I had the same last season and we still had 60 points. I have to combine the results with the development. Even at Arsenal that is not the case.

'I feel we have more talented players than any other club. Maybe Arsenal have the same. (Abou) Diaby and Denilson come on when things are going well or in the Carling Cup.

'For us it's still different, because of Ledley King being out we needed cover. We could go for (Cristian) Chivu, (Sylvain) Distin or Kaboul. We felt in the long term Kaboul will be a better player than the others.'

Blending development with victories has proved a problem in the opening seven league games of the season, with just one win so far.

Jol has been under intense pressure but has suggested getting rid of him would be a backward step for the club and feels his board understand the progress made in the last three years.

His view is backed up by chairman Daniel Levy who this week denied a package being agreed for Jol's departure, although there has been a lingering suspicion of the Dutchman keeping the seat warm since Spurs officials met Sevilla coach Juande Ramos last month.

Spurs were also linked with Jose Mourinho after the Portuguese coach left Chelsea, yet Jol is confident that his consecutive fifth-placed Premier League finishes have been recognised.

'The fans know how difficult it is if they change management again, they know you could easily go back for years,' Jol said on BBC Radio Five Live. 'I hope people are realistic - you can get anyone in the world to come, but to do better you must finish fourth.'

He added: 'There's football people at our board and I think they realise it otherwise they probably would have made a decision.

'I feel top five was probably more than we would have expected when I started.'
