Tottenham Hotspur transfer news: New deal for Vertonghen? Lopes linked with loan move

A round up of transfer stories this morning about Tottenham Hotspur.

The Express claims Belgian defender Jan Vertonghen has been offered a new five-year deal to stay at the club.

Vertonghen had been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona, which now seems likely to fall through.

“Rumours will always be there – I just go back to Tottenham - Where there’s smoke, there’s fire, they say, but for the moment there is certainly no fire,” said the player.

The Daily Mail claims Tottenham have been offered Sporting Lisbon right-back Miguel Lopez on loan.

Lopes played for Lyon on loan last season and is reportedly seen as surplus to requirements at the Portuguese club.

The 27-year-old has made four appearances for the Portuguese national side.

Tottenham are thought to be closing on deals for Southampton pair Jay Rodriguez and Morgan Schneiderlin.

Rodriguez is a great additional attacking player for Spurs while Schneiderlin is rumoured to have snubbed Arsenal to link up with Mauricio Pochettino.

Schneiderlin is valued at around £27 million while Rodriguez could set Spurs back £15-18 million.
