According to Tottenham via their website, three players have signed new contracts at the north London outfit, further proving that buying and selling players is not the only form of business that a club can do.
This news, amongst other things in recent days, goes to show that The Lilywhites are conducting great business.
With the European transfer window closing, it looks as though star defenders Toby Alderweireld and Danny Rose are set to stay. Maintaining those players is as good as any transfer, if not better, as they would be very hard to replace.
Maintaining the same squad and team cohesion was a contributing factor to their dismantling of Man United at Old Trafford on Monday. They were in stark contrast with a side that has spent a lot of money, but has a disjointed team.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino obviously has a lot of faith in the current crop of players that he has, including the younger players that are coming through the ranks. The new contracts until 2021 given to Luke Amos, Timothy Eyoma and Oliver Skipp are proof of this confidence.
While 17-year-old midfielder Skipp and 18-year-old defender Eyoma are yet to feature for Tottenham’s senior side, they have been mainstays in the under-23 sides despite their age. Amos, on the other hand, made his first team debut against Newcastle in the opening game of the season, and impressed many fans with his performance. The 21-year-old looks to be staying in north London this season, rather than being loaned out, with the potential of featuring throughout the season.
These deals are just an indication of the confidence that Tottenham have in their youth coming through. Pochettino is building something at White Hart Lane, and these three look to be part of it.
