Tottenham fans have been concerned about the prospect of losing three important players with Christian Eriksen, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen all into the final year of their contracts in North London.

There has been a positive update regarding one of those players this week with the Daily Mail reporting that Tottenham have begun discussions with the Belgian over a new contract but are said to be hesitant to offer him an extension of more than 12 months.

The centre half has admitted that he would like to extend his stay with the club and has insisted that he has at least another two good years of football left in him (The Guardian).

While some Spurs fans on social media were happy to hear the news that negotiations had begun with Vertonghen, many felt that the 32-year-old was deserving of at least a two-year extension given how important he has been to the club over the years.

Hear’s how some Spurs fans on social media reacted to the news:

Spurs Web Opinion

It looks likely that the defender won’t receive more than a one-year extension considering that was what he got last year as well. However, may be the club’s decision to offer Sissoko a four-year deal represents a change in policy with respect to contract offers for players over 30. We at Spurs Web certainly believe he is deserving of a two-year extension.
