Tottenham Hotspur: Fans discuss worrying Eriksen, Alderweireld & Vertonghen contract news

Three of Tottenham’s key assets could join Danny Rose by letting their contracts at the club run down.

Rose has vowed (per the Evening Standard) to see out the remaining 18 months on his current deal instead of moving away from the club, after it was confirmed by chairman Daniel Levy that he would not be offered a new contract.

The England international has squashed any potential rumours linking him with a move away in January, insisting that he will stay in north London and fight for his place ahead of Wales star Ben Davies in Spurs’ starting-XI.

“In January, you’re probably going to hear something [about my future]. I’m telling you right now that I’m not going anywhere until my contract is finished.

“Daniel Levy told me in the summer there was no new contract for me at Tottenham, which is fine. I respect that. We move on.

“My contract is up in 18 months’ time and I’ll leave the football club then. People can save their time ­trying to get stuff ready for January about me being sold.

“Because I can tell you now: it ain’t happening. I know what people were trying to do in the summer… There were no bids — that was rubbish,” said Rose.

Now, it has come to light that three more of Tottenham’s players – Christian Eriksen, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen – are all considering sitting tight until next summer, when their current deals run out, as per the Daily Star.

This would be a nightmare scenario for Levy, who has been trying to raise funds for boss Mauricio Pochettino to use on new recruits by selling some of his current players.

Here’s how Tottenham fans reacted to the situation on Twitter:
