Tottenham’s Japhet Tanganga pens new long-term contract

Tottenham Hotspur academy graduate Japhet Tanganga has committed his long-term future to the club after signing a new five-year contract that promises to keep him at North London until 2025.

Tanganga, 21, has enjoyed a terrific breakthrough campaign with Spurs last season and went on to make 11 appearances for Jose Mourinho’s side.

The centre-back made his Premier League debut in a 2-1 defeat to Liverpool in January and was a regular before injury prevented him from playing for the Lilywhites since the resumption of Premier League on June 17.

The Englishman has made 11 appearances in all competitions last term, with six of those coming in the top flight.

The youngster becomes the third player to sign an extension at Tottenham this summer, following the footsteps of Oliver Skipp and Eric Dier.

Meanwhile, Spurs have confirmed the departures of both Jan Vertonghen and Michel Vorm following the expiry of their contracts.
