Tottenham Hotspur morning news: Spurs working on new contracts for which two stars?

Jan Vertonghen

A round up of this morning’s key stories about Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham are reportedly keen to tie up the long term futures of goalkeeper Hugo Lloris and defender Jan Vertonghen.

The Daily Mail claims that the club are already working on new deals for the duo to be discussed at the end of the season.

However, Tottenham’s Premier League finish and Champions League football could be vital in securing the signature of either.

Tottenham star Erik Lamela will reportedly be out of action for a further six weeks through injury.

The Argentinian attacker has struggled to settle at the club following a £30 million move from Roma last summer.

Reports reveal that he’s picked up a back injury in a fresh setback which will keep him out of the side.

Tottenham’s Nacer Chadli says the side aren’t thinking about a Premier League title shot.

Spurs have strung together some good results since Tim Sherwood replaced Andre Villas-Boas but the winger says top spot isn’t the club’s priority.

“We're not really looking at first or second place. All we're looking at is Liverpool because they're the team directly above us,” said the Belgian.
