Report: Tottenham open talks with Mauricio Pochettino over a new contract

Spurs have progressed remarkably ever since his arrival, and there have been reports of interest from other Premier League clubs.

Tottenham have opened talks with their manager Mauricio Pochettino over a new contract, according to a report in the Daily Mirror.

Spurs are set to reward their boss for the progress that has been made at White Hart Lane under the Argentine's stewardship for the best part of the past two seasons.

Last season saw Spurs reach the League Cup final, only for them to lose out to Chelsea, while this season they are right in the mix for the Premier League title, and almost certain to qualify for the Champions League next season - and are still in the Europa League, and face a tough last-16 tie against Borussia Dortmund.

The report also comes about when there have been suggestions that both Chelsea and Manchester United are interested in trying to lure him away from White Hart Lane in the summer as they both search for a manager to take them back to the top of the English game. 

The Mirror say that Tottenham are keen to finalise a new deal for their manager before the season finishes, and aren't panicked by interest elsewhere - as he has three and a half years remaining on his current deal. 

It is of little surprise that they want to get their manager to strengthen his commitment to the club given the progress he has made with the side since his arrival from Southampton. If he continues that kind of progress then it could be a very special time at the club.
