Tottenham Hotspur fans may be able to rest easy regarding the contract situation of Japhet Tanganga at the club, as Jose Mourinho seems to have hinted at a stay.
It was reported this month by Football Insider that Mourinho’s charm offensive may have sparked a contract U-turn for Tanganga at Tottenham.
Spurs and Tanganga have reportedly been in talks for months now about a new deal that will see him remain at his boyhood club.
However, back in November, Football Insider reported that Tanganga had turned down Tottenham’s first offer of a new deal, which sparked worries among some fans.
It is likely that a string of appearances on the bench and a start against Liverpool will do no harm towards convincing Tanganga to sign a new deal.
Mourinho also hinted today in his press conference that he would not be playing Tanganga if his contract was set to expire at the end of the season.
Jose Mourinho told me in no uncertain terms that Japhet Tanganga’s contract does not end at the end of this season, despite the club announcing last summer that he had signed a one-year deal. “Do you think I would play him if his contract was expiring?”
