Lloris, Eriksen, Vertonghen, Lamela expected to extend contracts

Lloris, Eriksen, Vertonghen, Lamela All Expected To Extend Their Tottenham Contracts

With the news that Pochettino will be signing a new contract having been made public comes news that Hugo Lloris is set to sign a new deal.

That follows on from Christian Eriksen saying he'll sign another contract if Pochettino is staying and the club are also set to offer Eric Lamela a new deal after he proved himself this season.

Jan Vertonghen is having negotiations and is expected to sign a new £50k-a-week contract, up from £40K. Nacer Chadli is in discussions and Spurs have been tying down youngsters like Harry Winks and Josh Onomah to new deals.

The press would have you believe we are offering contracts to fend off interest from other clubs but in reality, we have a structured wage system and as players progress so they progress through the various guideline wage levels. It means players always know where they are and what is next financially. It helps the club plan financially as well instead of a bit of a free for all.

Players don't jump from, £10K-a-week to £70,000-a-week, they move from £10K to £25K then they move up again to £50K and then up to around £70K. They are not set in stone but are general, performance related add-ons make a difference to the final figure. There is the potential to go higher but for the players it isn't about the money, it's about being a part of a happy group, in an environment they love and challenging for trophies. The money takes care of itself.

Dele Alli, for instance, can expect to earn around £20m from sponsorship deals. He is a poster boy for both Spurs and England. His £1m boot deal with Addidas is set to take a big hike. Harry Kane is sponsored by Nike, our new sponsors when the Under Armour deal concludes at the end of next season. You can imagine what he will earn off the field, he'll be in plenty of Nike advertising.

As you can see we are not in the position we were a few years ago when we had players entering the last year of their contracts all the time, now we have a settled and very happy squad. Should anyone want any of our players now, they have to pay full price for them instead of waiting and trying to pick a player up cheap who only has a year left, as Everton did with Lennon.

The club needed some stability and now we have it, both on and off the field.
