Report: Tottenham finally agree contract with Nabil Bentaleb, will sign until 2020

Nabil Bentaleb Spurs

Tottenham have reportedly agreed terms over a new contract with Nabil Bentaleb.

According to the Daily Mirror, Tottenham midfielder Nabil Bentaleb is finally set to sign a new contract to stay at White Hart Lane.

The Algerian international, 20, arrived at White Hart Lane from French side Dunkerque in January 2012, and emerged into the first team under Tim Sherwood over a year ago.

This past season, Bentaleb has been a key player in Mauricio Pochettino's midfield, racking up appearances as well as admirers with a host of impressive displays.

Yet, with fellow youngsters Danny Rose, Ryan Mason and Harry Kane all receiving new contracts in the last 12 months as rewards for their performances, Bentaleb has grown frustrated that he hasn't been given the same treatment.

In a recent interview with The Telegraph, Bentaleb admitted that he was annoyed to have not signed a new contract yet given that he and the club have been locked in negotiations since September 2014.

Now though, Spurs may have finally made a breakthrough as the Daily Mirror report that Bentaleb has now agreed a new contract to stay in North London.

Just like Mason and Kane, the terms will tie Bentaleb to Tottenham until 2020, giving manager Pochettino a solid young base to build his side around for years to come - and that should be music to the ears of all Spurs fans, if the report is indeed correct.
