Japhet Tanganga signs five-year deal with the club
Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed on their website that Japhet Tanganga has put pen to paper; he has signed up to a new five-year deal.
Tanganga had put in several inspiring performances before the lockdown after breaking into the first-team. That game was against Liverpool in January.
He is a versatile defender and has been employed at left-back, right-back, as well as in central defence. Jose Mourinho commented that he has coped splendidly with the demands of the different roles. However, a back tension fracture prevented him, and he is only 21-year-old, from getting any appearances following the restart.
He has represented Spurs at every level from Under-16 to Under-20, has committed himself to the club until 2025.
My thoughts on Japhet signing.
This is brilliant news, I’ve always thought he was one for the future, and now that Jan Vertonghen has departed it might give him more opportunities. Going on the performances that Tanganga has put in this season, he has undoubtedly shown that he has the essential talent to be fourth-choice centre-back next season. Hopefully, he will also get minutes in when we play in the Europa League, where he will continue developing his game.
Congratulations Japhet Tanganga.
