Tottenham Hotspur are off to a winning start this season after their victory over Aston Villa on the opening weekend and the likes of Harry Winks, Ben Davies, and Lucas Moura have already penned new deals this campaign.

However, Spurs do have a number of other players whose contracts are now dwindling, so who will be next in line for a new deal?

We take a look at six of the players Daniel Levy may be looking at signing up next:

Eric Dier –

Dier’s current contract runs out in the summer of 2021 (Football London), meaning that Spurs currently only have two years left of his services. While few would class him as a regular started, Dier certainly has value as a versatile squad player, and even if Spurs want to sell him, signing him up to a bumper deal will increase the value.

Jan Vertonghen –

Vertonghen currently has under a year left on his contract in North London. With the Belgian being 32-years-old, there are arguments for and against giving him a new deal. However, he shows no signs of slowing down, and I think Spurs would be foolish not to offer him a two-year extension.

Oliver Skipp –

One of Tottenham’s most promising young talents, but Skipp has just two years left on his current contract. I would expect him to be one of the very next players to sign up this season.

Toby Alderweireld –

This one is more of a dream than a reality. Everything points towards Alderweireld leaving on a free next summer, but Tottenham simply have to do everything they can to keep him. You can buy new players, but you can’t replace that kind of talent.

Christian Eriksen –

Same again with Eriksen, he could leave on a free next summer, but what a waste! Even if Levy wants to engage in a gentlemen’s agreement with the Dane or a release clause that will let him leave in the future, a new contract just makes sense.

Danny Rose –

Danny Rose currently has two years left on his deal at White Hart Lane. At 29-years-old, the left-back has four or five years left at the top in my opinion, and Tottenham should be dying to make sure that time is spent with them.
