Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that another Tottenham player is set to put pen to paper on a new deal at the club.
The manager’s revelation on Tuesday follows confirmation that 22-year-old midfielder Eric Dier had signed a new five-year deal at White Hart Lane.
It was reported by the Sun on Sunday that Kyle Walker had agreed a new Tottenham deal worth £75,000-a-week, but nothing has been confirmed yet, while trio Jan Vertonghen, Hugo Lloris and Erik Lamela have also been linked with new contracts.
In the build-up to Spurs’ Champions League clash against Monaco, Pochettino promised in his press conference that there will be another player signing a new deal in the next few days.
“I can promise that maybe in the next few days there will appear another player with the same news that happened to Eric Dier,” said Pochettino in the press conference, as quoted by the Hertfordshire Mercury.
“It’s very important for the club, not only for me. It’s true that we [he and his coaching team] showed our commitment to the club when we signed a new deal and for the players it’s important to show their commitment with the club and it’s important for the future.”
Christian Eriksen also signed a new four-year contract with the club last Tuesday, as Pochettino looks to tie down his star players.
The Argentine boss moved to White Hart Lane from Southampton in the summer of 2014.
He has looked to lay down his own methods on the club and he achieved a successful third place finish last season, despite the end of season collapse.
Pochettino will now look to improve on that finish in the new campaign, while also competing in the Champions League.
