Versatile Tottenham defender pens new five-year contract

Highly-rated young Tottenham defender Japhet Tanganga has signed a new five-year contract with the club.

The 21-year-old enjoyed a breakthrough campaign this season and went on to make 11 appearances in total for Jose Mourinho’s side.

He made his Premier League debut at right-back in a 2-1 defeat at home to Liverpool in January. He was a regular before a back injury prevented him from playing for Spurs since football resumed.

Mourinho is a big fan of Tangana’s versatility and is expected to give him even more game time next term.




Veteran defender Jan Vertonghen has confirmed that his eight-year stay Tottenham has come to an end.

The Belgian defender joined Spurs in 2012, and has been a constant at the back over the past eight years.

The 33-year-old agreed a short-term deal to see out the extended campaign. But he has now confirmed his exit in an emotional post on his his Instagram account.

“I will miss the friends I’ve made here, the staff that make the club run, playing at the amazing new stadium & of course you fans,” he wrote.

“Thank you for all the support over the years. You’ve been amazing. We had many unbelievable memories but for now, it’s goodbye.”
