"I could not be happier to sign this new contract. It was an easy decision for my coaching staff and I because we can feel the appreciation of everyone here – there is no better place to be right now.

The supporters are unbelievable, we have assembled a great group of players with huge potential that can get even better, while the facilities we have to work in are world-class. We also have an incredible new stadium to look forward to and now we are determined to build a side worthy of playing in such an exciting new venue.

We have enjoyed a great season and we believe this is just the beginning. We have a long-term project and huge belief that we can achieve something big here for the future.

This club has all the ingredients to continue to challenge at the very top in both the Premier League and in Europe and we want to be here to be a part of what I believe will be a special period in the club's history."

Despite all of the recent success Pochettino has brought to Spurs, he wants to take the club to the next level. Inside sources claim that Pochettino is contemplating a complete staff overhaul, getting rid of anyone he considers deadwood. He is also sifting through the contract situations of each player from the U18s up to the Senior Squad.

"Mauricio doesn't want the club to be stagnating in a period of second-best success," a source close to the Argentinian claims. "He is ready to bring his club a trophy."

Contract Info
Mauricio Pochettino has committed his future to Tottenham Hotspur by signing a new five-and-a-half-year deal that will keep him in north London until 2021.

The Argentine manager verbally agreed the new contract last month but has now put pen to paper on the long-term deal believed to be worth £5.5million per year.

Spurs announced the news on Twitter on Thursday and confirmed that first-team coaches Jesus Perez and Toni Jimenez have also agreed contract extensions.
An intriguing start, a complete backroom staff overhaul will definitely add a bit of chaos to the happenings at Spurs

Mousa Dembele has signed a new contract with Tottenham which ties him to the club until 2022. The 30-year-old midfielder joined Spurs from Fulham in 2012. He has wowed fans over the past couple of seasons with his mixture of silk and steel whilst playing.

The Belgium international told the club's official website: "I am very happy I've signed and I'm happy to be part of our future.

"The way we're playing, the way the club is developing, everything is very good and everyone wants to be part of this team and this club. That's why I'm proud to extend my contract."

"I think we're playing very well as a team," he added. "The team is very young and I'm one of the older players now."

"It's nice to play in this team with the new young players. They're doing fantastic. Every year you can see we are getting better and better."

"The vibe is very nice. You want to be in a club where the vibe is good and the future is bright. That's why I'm so happy to have extended."

"If you're happy somewhere then time flies. Of course, that's the biggest thing for me, to feel comfortable."

Jan Vertonghen has signed a new contract at Tottenham that will run until 2020, the club have announced.

Vertonghen has been in negotiations since the end of last season and his new deal extends his commitment to Spurs by a year.

The Belgium international moved to White Hart Lane in July 2012 from Ajax and has become a key figure under Mauricio Pochettino.

“I was very happy once I put my autograph on the paper,” Vertonghen told Spurs TV. “I was extremely happy, big relief. I’m very happy to be here, the future looks great so I am very happy to be a part of it.

“This is an unbelievable group of talented guys and I feel privileged to be a part of that. There’s a great atmosphere in the team and a great buzz around Tottenham.”

Vertonghen’s partnership with Toby Alderweireld last season was crucial to Tottenham launching a surprise title challenge and qualifying for the Champions League. Their defensive record of 26 goals conceded was the lowest in the Premier League.

“It feels great to be a little part of the big part Tottenham is. I can’t imagine playing somewhere else at the moment,” Vertonghen said. “This is probably the strongest squad I’ve ever played in and I think everyone agrees with me.”

These two deals add some stability to a club that had overseen huge backroom upheaval during July, 2017. Pochettino has also jumped ahead to extend goalkeeper Thomas Glover's deal until 2022. Whilst he may be on loan in Australia, Pochettino clearly sees future value for Glover, who is only 19 years old.
