Tottenham defender Japhet Tanganga is set to become the latest Tottenham defender to commit his future to the club by signing a new deal.
In the past week, Oliver Skipp and Eric Dier have put pen to paper on new contracts and now home-grown Tanganga is likely to follow suit agreeing fresh terms. It is expected that the new deal will last until 2024, and that there will be a considerable boost to his current weekly earnings of £1,000 a week.
The 21-year old, who can play anywhere across the back line, was given his debut in Spurs’ humiliating EFL Cup defeat at Colchester United in September.
However, it was under his successor Jose Mourinho that he has flourished and was handed his first Premier League start against Liverpool in January.
He has not played since the resumption of football after the lockdown due to a stress fracture in the back, but ahs been on the bench for Tottenham’s last two games.
Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
