More good news for the Tottenham fans in the Football Transfer Tavern…
It was a quiet summer at White Hart Lane, with a few relatively low-key deals the only business that Mauricio Pochettino was able to complete during the off-season.
But whilst the summer was fairly quiet for the Tottenham faithful in the Football Transfer Tavern – the beginning to the Premier League season has been anything but!
On the pitch, Tottenham have slowly found their stride in the Premier League, and look set to re-find their near-title winning form from last season – ahead of yet another title challenge.
Off the pitch it has been even more hectic – with a plethora of deals recently being confirmed by the Tottenham brass.
The main focus of these deals has been on player contracts, with Mauricio Pochettino seemingly keen to tie down his core group of players to long-term stays with the London giants.
Eric Dier and Dele Alli have been the two biggest names to sign on, alongside a number of younger players – and it appears that the good news is set to continue for the Tottenham faithful in the Football Transfer Tavern.
According to the Independent, Tottenham are set to announce a trio of new deals over the next few weeks, as Pochettino’s Tottenham revolution rolls on.
The players in question are the defensive trio of Kyle Walker, Danny Rose and Jan Vertonghen – three defenders, alongside Toby Alderweireld, who only signed in 2015 – that made up the near-impenetrable Tottenham defense of last season.
One Tottenham fan in the Football Transfer Tavern is delighted at the news, and rates new deals for this trio more highly than that of Dele Alli.
He adds that Tottenham are a side that build from the back; and so it is essential that Spurs’ long-term defensive future has been sorted.
The Independent add that the deals for the players should be announced over the next few weeks, with each set to receive a bumper pay rise for their efforts.
Whilst Tottenham’s Premier League performances have been improving; their shock Champions League defeat on the opening day to Monaco proved that Spurs’ were anything but the finished article – and so Mauricio Pochettino has a lot of work to do to ensure that his side are competing on all fronts this season.
Saying that, our landlord thinks that ensuring his best players are tied down to long-term contracts is an excellent place to start.
