Former Tottenham Hotspur and England midfielder Jermaine Jenas feels that following the arrival of new manager Jose Mourinho, two of our perceived contract rebels will now commit their futures at White Hart Lane – namely, defensive duo Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen.

However, he doesn’t feel that a change in gaffer will have any effect on the future of midfielder Christian Eriksen.

With plenty of speculation about all three players, Vertonghen’s future came more into doubt at the beginning of the season when he didn’t find himself in the squad on occasions and all the inevitable rumour mill speculation that generated about his fitness and so on.

Quoted by The Express recently, Jenas was quietly confident that our centre-halves would pen news deals at some point in the next six months, leaving only Eriksen as somebody we’d lose for nothing when his existing deal expires over the summer.

“One of the biggest question is: can Harry Kane play for Jose? I look at his past strikers. The likes of Didier Drogba, Diego Milito, Romelu Lukaku. He has always had creators around them. There are not many I fear in that Spurs forward line. But Harry will have to find something extra. He has been below par for Spurs since the start of the season. He might have to offer more than scoring a goal. More will be expected. Dele Alli will have to raise his game. He will love Son to bits. He gets up and down the pitch and scores. Eric Dier will get back in favour all of a sudden. He can be rejuvenated. I think he will sort out the Vertonghen and Alderweireld situation. He loves experience. It makes sense not to spend there and look after them instead. I bet they’ll sign new deals in the next six months. I think he might let Eriksen walk out of the door, thinking he doesn’t desperately need him.”

The Harry question is also a good one now and we’re already seeing bizarre swap reports from Spain involving Karim Benzema.

It’s going to be an interesting few weeks now, but I think plenty would take even 12 months extensions for Toby and Jan as a small boost here.

Will Toby & Jan Now Sign New Deals?

  • “Been below par this season” what about last season he was very poor and I can’t understand why all you so call pundits fail to notice this? he is part of the reason Pochettino got the sack over the last 2 season Harry’s goals has drop by over 50% in the premiership do you think Mourinho will tolerate that sort of return from a supposedly best striker in the world.

    Pochettino would have left spurs last season had Levy given him permission to speak to Man U. he started sulking after that and then there was the embarrassing press conferences before and after the champions league, the decision to start Kane instead of Moura drama after drama, are you staying or are you going all summer.
    We may never know but did Poch engineer his sacking? don’t forget Harry Redknapp was allegedly sack for the same thing when he wanted the England job.

    I was sad about Pochettino sacking after all the great seasons he has given spurs, but 2018-2019 season he change and it got worse this season the proof of that is 14th in the Premiership, there was only going to be one winner and that’s Levy love him or hate him, his job is to protect the club by all means necessary.
