Tottenham Hotspur and Toby Alderweireld signed a new long-term contract at Hotspur Way today, keeping the player in North London until 2023.

The Belgian defender had previously been set to leave the club on a free at the end of this season as his previous contract ran out.

So, who should Tottenham be signing up to a new deal next?

Jan Vertonghen – The most pressing issue, Jan Vertonghen’s dwindling contract. With him seemingly a favourite under Mourinho and his contract ending in six months, I can’t help but feel that Jan is next.

Japhet Tanganga – Another big problem, Japhet Tanganga’s current contract runs out in the summer of 2020. As the most promising young centre-back at the club, he needs a new deal.

Troy Parrott – The gem of the academy, Parrott’s contract expires in 18-months and Spurs simply must offer him a new five-year deal.

Eric Dier – If Jose Mourinho does intend to stick with Dier, then the player will need a new contract as his current one expires in 2021.

Oliver Skipp – Much like Dier, Skipp’s contract runs out in 2021 and he certainly deserves a long-term deal.

Juan Foyth – He certainly seems to be a big part of the future of Spurs’ back line, and with his contract expiring in 2022, now seems like the perfect time to sign a new one.

Paulo Gazzaniga – If Mourinho fancies Gazza as a Lloris replacement then he will need a contract past 2022.

Heung Min Son – His current deal doesn’t expire until 2023, but it is always a good idea to keep these kinds of players on five-year deals.
