Our Tottenham fans here in the Transfer Tavern can’t wait for the Premier League season to start this year as they head to Newcastle on the opening day.
The men from White Hart Lane will be playing at Wembley this season and will surely be hoping to challenge for the title once again this time out.
Of course, fans would have expected them to sign some players in the transfer window but they haven’t to date and so it remains to be seen if that changes before the window slams shut.
In the meantime, though, more worrying news about the club has come out involving Toby Alderweireld with him saying that there has been no progress in terms of contract talks at the club.
Indeed, when asked if there was any news of a deal by Sky Sports, he said:
“No news that I know of so nothing…zero.”
Tottenham’s best defender, Spurs fans would obviously like to see him sign a new deal before too long – perhaps more than a new signing arriving this summer – but for now he is on a contract that expires in two year’s time.
For sure, getting Alderweireld on a new deal is the most important bit of business Spurs can do in the near future.
The club’s defence is arguably the best in the league but a big part of that factor is because of the Belgian’s presence alongside Jan Vertonghen.
Spurs need to prove that they are serious about being one of the biggest sides in the league and title contenders year in, year out and getting Alderweireld on a contract would certainly do that.
Thoughts, Spurs fans? Let us know below!
