The wonderful news that broke yesterday, with Harry Kane signing a new five-year deal, put a smile on my face.
The new contract means that our leading striker won’t be the subject of transfer enquiries from Europe’s leading clubs in the near future.
But more importantly, his new weekly wage reputed to be £200,000 a week lifts Kane to the level of his peers in the Premier League.
It also signals a change in attitude from those that run our club, a change that, at last, signals Tottenham Hotspur are ready to change their wage structure to match the levels of our competitors
This morning we’re greeted by the further possible good news, with the tabloid publication the Mirror, reporting that Tottenham are also set to offer two more of their squad improved long-term deals with the duo being 22-year-old Dele Alli and 26-year-old Christian Eriksen.
However, it remains to be seen if this dawn of a new era will see Toby Alderweireld’s situation at the club change.
Will the 29-year-old Belgian international defender be offered new terms that get his approval, or has he already burnt his bridges?
I guess time will reveal all.
