Tottenham have offered defender Japhet Tanganga a new deal to prevent him quitting next year, Football Insider can reveal.
The Londoners are vulnerable to losing the centre-back, 20, as he is out of contract at the end of the season.
A Tottenham source has told Football Insider the club have tabled a contract offer to Tanganga after the green light from Mauricio Pochettino.
The Argentine is a big admirer of the rising star and regards him as a player capable of establishing himself in the first team.
They are set to be given more prominent roles in the coming months, amid a startling decline in the performances of the senior stars.
Tanganga was handed his Tottenham debut in the League Cup defeat to third-tier Colchester United in September.
Like fellow debutant Parrott, the centre-back played 66 minutes of the match, which finished goalless in normal time before Spurs suffered a humiliating loss on penalties.
He was used in a three-man defence alongside Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez, while Skipp was in midfield and Parrott spearheaded the attack.
Tanganga has not had any subsequent first-team action, but Spurs have high hopes for the youngster, who joined their academy at the age of 10.
