Tottenham has mutually agreed to a new contract with Toby Alderweireld after not being able to secure the services of Norwich City's Ben Godfrey. The Premier League club made an official announcement in which they said that Alderweireld had signed on for the club until 2023. According to reports, the new deal will ensure that the player earns £120,000-a-week. The announcement by Tottenham has been welcomed by people supporting the club and comes a couple of days before the centre-back was a free agent to go play for a different club in the January transfer window.
Tottenham's former target, Ben Godfrey, signed for Norwich City in the year 2016 and established himself as a crucial part of Norwich's plans to do well in the Premier League. His credibility has continued to grow in the Premier League after Norwich won the Championship title last season. Due to his brilliant performance, his value has increased to 20-25 million pounds after signing a new contract with his current team that will run out in 2023.
Jose Mourinho-led Tottenham Hotspur will go up against Chelsea, who are only three points ahead of their North London counterparts. The meeting between both the London teams have garnered huge attention in the last couple of years, but this year there will be extra spice to the whole affair. Jose Mourinho will go up against his former player - Frank Lampard - who was appointed as Chelsea coach earlier this season after a successful stint with Derby County.
